good pick on the car :)
i'd say best place to start would be taking a look around at a wreckers, most people will suggest to get an MPFI conversion done. other then that, look at other ppls cars on here and see what you like. :)

theres no such thing as a carby'd EA, althought the CFI throttlebody is really only a carby with injectors instead of jets...

I would start by doing a search for MPFI conversion, thats definately the best thing you can do to a CFI, next would be a T5 conversion and diff change depending how serious you are.
As for the repsray, remember if you change colour you have to do door jams, engine bay etc etc

Yes, I know they don't exist. It's obviously some sort of rumour that started because of people getting confused about CFI. I've had a few people claim there were carby EAs, only to stand corrected.

You'll find lots of pictures at http://eafalcon.com/pictures/memberscars/
