My car seems to eat tachs. I usually go cheap as I only use it for staging and shift via stand alone msd shift light. First tach was an eqquis that had a 5 star rating. Lasted 2 years. Next one was a summit cheapo that lasted 1 year. Per the tach my car idles at 0 rpm, needs to go. Is it that im using cheap crap? What do y'all recommend for a replacement?

Two of my AutoMeters celebrated their 35th birthday, and one recently turned 24...all hooked to MSD units.

Autometer user here too. I learned long ago that it's better to get good stuff right off the bat. Their playback versions might be worth considering. I learned a LOT because I saw what was actually happening on the replays wasn't always what I thought was happening.

This seems weird but does the engine have a good ground? I killed my autometer tach when I tried to start the car with no ground wire on the engine. Tach pegged when I hit the starter and never worked again.
