Default mulitiple items needing rpm signal

MSD 6al box....2001 Dodge Dakota running stock PCM and EFI

I need an rpm signal for:
Tach
Shift light
2 step
Air Shifter
Nitrous controller
Data logger

Can I simply run a main wire from the tach signal output on the MSD to a terminal strip and hook everything up to that?

EDIT: After looking around the MSD tach output can handle three devices, is a Tach Adapter in my future?

Thanks

So I'm guessing the trigger wire from the 8920 could then feed a terminal strip which would then supply the rpm signal to all the other devices once hooked up.

Sounds like a plan.
