What ecu do you plan to run? wouldn't you be better off going a el engine as it runs the dissy the same as your ed? not the multi coil system. Would be less stuffing around for yourself.

Can use an EF motor no worries, just pull out the cam angle sensor and drop in your existing distributor.
Yes, ED trans will bolt straight up.
Motor will go straight in using all your existing ancillaries.

definatly will NOT drop straight in, major work is involved. Best option is going a low KM EL motor, not able to get that, then yeah an EF motor modified as above. Do you intend on using the BBM or log manifold when you turbo? If BBM and you are looking at turbo sooner rather than latter, while the motor is out open the BBM and remove the butterflies.
