Why not just fix the EFI? They are quite reliable and simple systems.

And they’re better than a carb, even though it’s a “Stone Age” EFI system...

Kinda depends. Yes in many ways they are better - but for raw low end torque the Weber still wins.

Nobody has asked which EFI you ask about.

The EA82 has three basic efi set ups and the parts manual lists 20 different ECU part numbers !

Are you asking of single or twin intake ports per head?

I believe the USDM got SPFI or MPFI turbo. There’s no NA MPFI over there AFAIK. 

So it’ll be the SPFI heads.

Quite Rare, but I have seen a stock 3rd generation EA82 Wagon from '85 or '86 (pre-facelift) that was a GL-10; it had N/A multipoint fuel injection.

Was for sale in Portland a few years back on CL.

To the O.P... it should be possible. You're in the right place to do research.
