1.3 - carb to EFI

Finished my buggy a couple of months ago. Other than fouling some plugs, stock carb has worked great. UNTIL NOW. Seems that bouncing over rock while running level caused it to "load up." Couple blips on the pedal would clear it. Now it is burning oil. I.E. blue smoke. I believe the constant rich/lean has burnt a valve. Before I rebuild the head AGAIN, I'm looking at an e.f.i. out of an 89' Suzuki Swift, 1.3 DOHC. Question is, can I bolt this to my 1.3 SOHC??? I know I need ecm, wiring, and e.f.i. components. What else do I need? Elec. fuel pump? What else. Do I need the head off of the DOHC? Will it bolt up? Will the DOHC be any benefit.
Here's some specs on the rig. I'll try to get some pics posted.
87' 1.3 SOHC
stock 5 speed
stock t-case (soon to have 6.5:1 w/ twin stick)
stock sammy axles f/r 5.29:1, quick lok
one link front with 145lb. 14" coils
one link rear with transverse leaf
34x10.50x15 LTB
full hyrdo steer
tube chassis
Almost forgot, 1520lbs.
under $4000.00


Now, let me try and figure out how to post pics...

get all the wiring and computer. The head will fit on with NO MODS and parts are easier to find that suzuki "truck" stuff. You will need to find a dash from a 88.5 and newer samurai because you need a vss.

You will also need an electric fuel pump from that car or a sidekick. Use an intank pump or buy an aftermarket high pressure pump for efi.

The distributer will also need a hole in your fire wall to clear.

Other than that, you should be just fine.
