    i have a whole integra rs banged up blown trans, also have an efdx hatch, would it be worth the time or be more practical to swap the body harness from the teg to the hatch instead of dpfi to mpfi mod my hatch harness and the do the install from there?

    took forever,just a real pain in the ass..honestly it makes more sense just to do the dpfi-mpfi harness conversion

    The Si Cluster is plug and play. Nothing extra needed.

    so to get my head clear...
    mpfi harness mod makes it an si spec harness
    its my understanding from the research ive done that the b18a1 plugs into the si harness?

    yes mpfi makes it si spec,but you dont mess with the the shock plugs..you do all the work with the actual engine harness...and i do not think your mpfi teg harness will clip into your dpfi cabin harness(shock plugs)
