For the work required, I suggest you get a wrecked EA Ghia from the auctions = couple hundred. Sell the engine/gearbox, you should make most or all of your money back, then use the dash, wiring loom, intake, fuel pump form it in your car.
To alter the EA GL wiring to take power windows, and the electronic dash, is very hard. The dash goes easily enough, but you need to rewire all the plugs in the back and run a heap more wires for the sensors on the door open system.
MPFI is a matter of bolting on the manifold, changing the fuel pump and computer, and moving a wire or four. Very very easy, there's a heap of threads on here about it. Probably there's somebody in your area willing to help out for a carton or something.
