there is a blue-pink wire going to the plug on the right hand side of the instrument cluster. You can also get it from the diagnostic port.

Nicely positioned. :)

A shift light is a really good idea, in my opinion.

A shift light on a 12,000rpm tacho, and you should be sent to jail to get bashed in the a**...

I made my own with a rpm switch and a high intensity LED. Looks as close to a factory fitted shift light as you could get and is very effective.
