This was in reference to DZire petrol.
So petrol Tachometer is what needs to be installed

Both of you are giving different versions to buy. Please clarify which one works actually. Petrol tacho or diesel tacho ?
I was referring to the installation done on my Diesel Swift.

For Alto, the A-Star tachometer can work as the alto k10 and the erstwhile a-start used to share the same engine.

Will the Zen have the same engine speed (brown) wire as Swift? If someone can confirm, I'll take the plunge and do it this weekend!

It should. But please check the PS module and check if the wiring is common, else access a service manual to verify the signal before buying. It

Yes for the Alto, but not sure about the Kwid. Signals vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and its just the uniformity within manufacturer that enables this install on multiple cars.

For a 3 cylinder engine - ALTO, one can try installing A-star tachometer.
This is not required. They are cross compatible. Number of cylinders does not matter for the digital ones. The analogue ones which take the engine timing as reference have this issue.

Else, if you are planning to put an aftermarket tacho in Zen Mpfi,
You can tap the input to tachometer from ignition coil.
I had done as per below
