tach install.

hey guys. i just recently got a free tach, so i figured since my truck didnt come with a tach i would just install it. I'm having troubles figuring out where to run the green wire to. being a 98, the truck doesnt have a distributor, but the 2 seperate coil packs. it says run the green wire to the negative side of the ignition coil, but i have 2 seperate ones! which one does it connect to...coil pack (cylinders 1,4) or coil pack (cylinders 2,3)?
