but you have to cut out the top and lower radiator supports, so the front of the motor fits. then you have to re enforce the unibody, i used a big steel bumper, and a strut tower brace.
radiator is the biggest problem.
its got lotsa torque, but... its lotsa work.
makes everyone look your way when you floor it.
oh, and i break alot more stuff now.

you would have to put the entire engine harness for the FI computer in - and that is a project in and of itself!
What about wiring harness?

As far as the wireing goes, it is best to get the whole harness from a donor car along with the motor and computer. The computer is located under the rear deck, so thats why you want to whole thing. Then just follow the plugs from the computer and cut off anything that isn't connected. Then with a good wireing diagram you can start omitting stuff that isn't need for the computer (like the controls for the electronic power steering.) Connect power and ground the system, run the wires to where you want to computer to be located. Then you will need to new fuel pump, this is FI, so you need high pressure. I reccomend running a new supply line, the old supply line will work for the return.
You can get creative on your own for the cooling. I made a new front end for my Brat, so I just pushed it out a few inches, and put the radiator up front, some have put the rad on top of the motor, or you could put it in the bed, but that requires a lot of plumbing. Here's a pic of my setup:
Lots of luck to ya, and when ya get it done, it will be tonnes of fun!!
