SunPro for sure makes them, but they're cheap and ugly. Their tachs supports 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 & 10 cylinder engines.

Defi is really sweet and highend (=$$$ expensive) their VSDII (no longer in production) supports 3, 4, 5, 6 & 8 cylinder engines. This type of gauge uses a VFD to project its information HUD style onto your windshield http://www.defi-shop.com/product/vsd2/vsd2_top.html

Omori meter out of japan also makes 3 cylinder tachs, for those interested. Haven't the first clue where to get one, other than factory direct, but they seem to be decent units.

If you see a Mac Tools truck in your area stop them.,they have or can order some tachs that say "Mac Tool Racing" that are made by Sunpro and also work on 3 Cyl.Just a thought :P

Hey Guys,

I did put a Sunpro tach on my metro that had a 3 cylinder in it. It's easy to install and should only take less then 1 hour to hook everything up.
There 4 wires Green, red, white and black. Black to ground, red to +12v, white to lights( parking light switch is a good place) and green to -negative output on the ignition coil. Follow the steps in the box and your good to go.
