well if you want you can try and splice every wire into the old harness, or you could send it out to a shop and have them do it ($$$$). its also possible to have someone who has done a harness b4 that u trust, and have them do it for u. (i sent mine out to rallispec)

On the engine yes, but you need to intergrate the engine harness into the main harness in the car. It is a major pain and very time consuming. The only way you can get away with not doing this is to swap the car to RHD and get a full harness out of JDM car, but this will cost more and be even more time consuming. I recomend that you send the harness out to someone and have them do all the splicing, that way it will be plug and play for you when it come back.

Hope this helps.
