    main problem you'll have is no prev. fuel injection. so you'll have to figure out a way to get an electric fuel setup in there and IIRC you'll have to get another gas tank for that kind of a pain. there are other big problems you'll run into that will make you say "fug it" sell that one and get and EF.

    D16A1 w/a dual carb setup...thats all you need (TWM makes an intake manifold for it)

    I'll sell ya a dual carb manifold to fit the SI head..
    I did that to a 87dx long ago.. It was dual Mikunis though. Stock cam and got pretty good mileag. NOTHING like FI, but good nontheless.
