    was your car originally an si? because if not then it wouldn't work. like if you had a dx and used an si harness it wouldn't work

    The thing is I was always told that your engine harness has to match your interior harness. so I think you would have to get another dx harness and either convert that to mpfi or buy an already converted harness
