You don't say what vehicle this is. Here's the MSD Manual.

Unless proform can tell you the polarity of the pickup, you will have to figure it out yourself. I think the MSD instructions tell how to do it.

sounds like black with red goes to purple +
plain black goes to green -
That is how I would try it first
