You can put it straight in, change over the synchronizer for a distributor, and retain all your other bolt ons.

if he's already got the bbm then the ecu will already be equiped to run it.

but id he has the log manifold then he can just bolt it all up.

you wont be able to run the coil packs. ef computer has 120 pin ECU.
only xh xr6 came with bbm.
so your best going with a distributor, and an EL ECU as it will plug straight in, and all you have to do is run the wire for the vacuum solenoid
