I put a new 83 coil, and a disty/alt from a 83 Brat into my '80 GL 4x4 wagon with 1600.
it runs awesome now. I was hitting 80-85 today no problems, and it would hold the 80 up the hills that normaly I would have sunk down to 60-65 on....
and the swap is easy...

remove coil and IGN module
cut the plug off the Ext VR, and use the wires to join the proper ones together as indicated in the first link below. (read the comments too)
install int VR Alt
Install the newer electronic disty, and be sure to use the newer disty's hold down plate.
the ea71 distys had 2 vac lines attached. attach the one for advance to the disty, and plug the retard vac line.
I studied up my wiring diagrams, and used the link below for reference for the alt/VR swap.
