TUFESP,

What's up your nose? If you can't take other peoples opinions, you shouldn't be posting here. Grow up.

If i were you, Id just fix the current motor up. And maybe give it a few goodies at the same time. The EA's do go quite good in 5spd trim(even cfi). And yours already being MPEFI, your laughing.

Depends what a 'decent' price is though?

If you didnt what to fiddle with wiring and the electronics then just bolt you current intake manifold to the EF motor and it ill drop straight in your EA no trouble at all.

A 5speed XR6 powered EA Ghia would be a bit of a sleeper for sure....
