red=power
black=ground
white= tap into the parking light or headlight fuse
green= goes to the negative side of the coil or you can intercept the lead going to the stock tach.

run the red to the fuse box and switched 12v source. The black ground to any ground spot like where the dash harness is grounded. I don't know the wire color for the illumination white wire. for the Tach lead green run it through the firewall harness grommet to the coil wire which is orange and green I believe(dont have the car in front of me to go look at). get yourself a test light and find the negative side of the plug to be safe. you can also use this to find your key on switched 12v source in the fuse box.
