Lua Based Engine Timing Light?

Need some help with an idea. I've been wanting to build an engine timing lite that mounts to the engine. there are several DIY projects that entail about $30 of electronics and a homemade pickup for the spark plug wire. seems simple, while i was figuring out how to make an inductive pickup i started to wonder if it would be possible to use a lua script to drive an led based on the rpm channel? could the outputs flash an led quick enuff? how would i sync it to cylinder number one? any thoughts would be appreciated.
