I have bought a roller without an engine wiring harness, it was a 4 that will be converted to a 6 with MSD and built in alt regulator, would it be just as easy to start from scratch with a harness than mod an old one?

Sorry thought it said "was".

You will have to decide on several things
- to keep the relay board or delete it.
-where you plan to mount the MSD box.
-where you're mounting the fuel pump.
-what extra gauges you will run and how you want to run the wiring.

My engine harness I deleted the relay board and made it a quick conect to the main harness using the proper connector, but I still have a couple connections on the right side where I mounted my regulator and MSD. My MSD I did a stealth install in the stock location by modifying a /6 CDI mount. Then I still have a secondary harness for some of my gauges, again with a quick disconnect.
Using quick disconnect(s) my harnesses stay on the engine for easy R&R of the engine.

Taking the extra time sorting and planning of where everything goes will make for a much cleaner cable harness install.

If you're not that great with wiring and for the proper connectors Perry is you're best bet for getting a clean harness that is custom built to your needs.
