If I were to EFI a carb'd ea82, could I use a non soob EFI System?

I assume that if I got it out of a common car, like a corolla or laser, (someone from ausubaru suggested the SPFI off an early 1.6 Suzuki Swift) would make it much cheaper.

the hardest part would be gettin the crank angle, or cam angle sensors in there, but its totaly doable =]

But i still have to find all the parts, MAF, injectors, TPS, ect dont I?
Is it expencive? (remember i live on the other side of the globe)
how complicated is it?
I was thinking, if i got a complete efi from another car, installed it and used the megasquirt as a upgrade.
If I got 2 efi systems and had 2 throttle bodies (one over each head) 2 o2 sensors, 2 ecu's, ect ect. would this improve my ecconmy/power?
Im just playing with ideas at the mooment

the megasquirt will use 2 02's and adjust each side accordingly
and yes you could run 2 tbi's.. or build your own custom tpi setup
even being across teh pond i doubt doing a homebrew megasquirt setup would cost any more than it would over ehre.. if i recall there are a few peopel over there that help distribue the kits and the pre assembled boxes
as far as i know you can run anything froma lawnlower <a few have> all teh way up to a????? not sure there is a limit
outside of not over taxing the injector drivers but witht he right injector setup and ballast resistors to help compensate for the laod some injectors pplace on the unit
btw what you thingking of is called a ir setup
independant runner it common place on v8's and small motors usually using dual or tripple barrel weber carbs
the good side is once its all tuned and synced together.. a carbed ir setup ahs awesome low end grunt plus usally breathes well at hi rpm ..
bad side is getting all those carbs synced up so they open all at once the same amount
doing a ir setup with efi is easier and get better results especially if you run a o2 sensor in each exhaust since it can compensate for changes between one side or the other on the fly
if your try and do the dual stock ecu /dual o2 setup your thinking.. you will have the problem of dumping way to much fuel in
even tho its only one throttle body per engine side .. the stock ecu would still think its feeding all four cylinders off each throttle body <if thats makes any sense>
so the result would be flooding rough running bad economy and crappy power
using a ms box to control the throttle bodies you can tune back the rate of fuel injection to suite the motor
just .0000002 cents or sumthing
just a suggestion.. go to that website i posted.. and ask questions there.. i am prety sure there are alot of vw people running this system ... and they would have better help for ya than i would i suspect.. unles your turbocharged and mpfi

1 ms ecu, 2 throttle body injectors (1 each above each head), 2 o2 sensors, could it be done with 1 air flow sensor? = more low end and more overall power???
Im gonna post on their site and get more info
