    there is no specific wire called the tach wire, it is usually the odd colored wire at either of the fuel injectors. if u have the tools u can test it, u will need a volt-meter, u will put the positive end in the wire and the other end to ground set a/c volts, now start the viecle u should get a reading off the wire now when u press the accelorator it should increase, but trust me on this its what i do for a living remote starters all day. also if it is equipped with a factory alarm you must hookup factory alarm disarm wire. will write back with exact wire colers.

    1998 mazda 626 tacvh wire is at the ignition coil, red or green for 4 cylinder or white for the 6 cylinder, there is not facory alarm disarm, but the doorlocks are brown yellow for lock and white and brown/white at tan plug by hood release

    I would advice to check with some repair guide for your car.

    Yesterday my HID kit from Drivenmotoring.com came in the mail. Its a 6000k Bi-Xenon Kit and all of the parts in the kit said "XenonWorx". At first I wasn’t sure how it was going to work but after about 30minutes I had them in the car and running... overall the install was easy
    I am pleased with the beam pattern that you get with this kit and I DO recommend it to others as it offers much more light on "low beam" than even silverstar bulbs do but its no so much that it blinds other drivers, also it passed what I consider the "cop test" last night when I passed a cop on main street and he didn’t do anything.

    The High beam setting with these lights is comparable to it being an overcast day. At one point I was on a long strait and hit the highs and saw trees light up over 1/2 mile away.

    Right now They have these for sale on Drivenmotoring.com website for 280 bucks, which is 80 bucks less than normal, and offers them in 4300k 6000k 8000k 10000k and 12000k and it really is a plug and play unit. They even can do custom bulbs also. The customer service was awesome, I’d recommend these kits to anybody.

    GS 400, when I get my h4 conversion kit I'm going to put them in my Bmw also. the kits are by far the best I've seen on the market. I've tried a couple kits before and they didn't work out to what I was promised. But Travis at drivenmotoring sold me on them. And he delivered everything he promised the best. If You have any ? then Contact him at travis@drivenmotoring.com
