    Head , Efi Advice Please.

    Hi folks, This is my first post so I apppalojiz for any spelling mistakes now!! I have a dilemma and hope you can help. I have a 1.8 pinto with a Pieburg carb (yuk ) the head has soft valve seats and the ems is the dreaded ESC II . I want to go over to efi, dont know a lot about it , so advice please. Will the 2ltr efi head go straight onto the 1800 block if I use a 2 ltr head gasket , coil , distributor and the EEC IV control system ? Im not after high performance, just smooth running and reliability. I suppose a straight 2ltr efi swap would be the best solution, but the 1800 was such a good runner in the donor. Also can anyone suggest a good place to stick the batte-- on 2nd thoughts forget that!!!! Happy new year everyone. Regards Alan.
