Was the turbo SPFI or MPFI? If it was SPFI, it should be possible to use the same turbo harness along with some parts off the turbo engine -- just swap the long block and forget the up pipe and turbo -- it will just think it has zero boost all the time now. If the turbo was MPFI though (the EA82 turbo's were MPFI, right???), the new engine won't have the right heads though....

All the turbos are MPFI, unless it's a poor aftermarket conversion. You need the SPFI harness and computer.
