Question How does one install a shift light?

Installing a shift light I once used on my GTO proved perplexing when I realized that the Camaro has eight rather than a single coil. How does one connect it?

It conects to the tach signal wire from the PCM. However I don't know what wire that is at this time. It's really easy though.

I just have to ask, but why would you install a shift light? Isn't that what the tachometer is for?

OEM tachs tend to read slower than aftermarket, so a shift light helps you nail your shifts down, plus watching rpms at the track or street instead of the road is dumb.

I agree with ya there. It's kind of hard on a road course doing over a hundred. I have been trying to find out now for 6 mos.
