l believe there is a turbine in speed sensor on the transmission. Also the data is available on the buss I don't know how it's accessed but a lot of people will connect their head units to it.

I would think that either the crank or cam sensor could be used and both should be available in the E-box to make a nice job of it. Read the instructions with your kit and get a wiring diagram.

Crank and cam output very odd compared to rpm. Crank probably direct multiple but cam very weird.

Not as easy to do on Canbussed' based vehicles. You're likely going to need something that can plug into the OBD and will likely be run off software rather than based on a quote tachometer signal which usually follows with distributor ignition systems.
