If its Satish of Top gear,I know he's not comfortable with ECUs.
I would suggest you stick to fuel injection.Get the ECU wiring done from an electronically sound mech.

Yes, please stick to the EFI, its much simpler to run the engine that way, try a good mechanic who works with FI cars or a Maruti authorized service station(whether they'll do the job or not depends on your relationship with them though) - i'm sure they'd be able to get it right.

In case you'd not want to shift mechanics and he doesn't understand much about EFI, just give him a copy of the swift GTI service manual (in case you can't get a copy searching on the net, send me a PM!) and ask him to wire the engine as shown in the manual - its not as difficult as it sounds!

Talking about the ignition timing control..... i have got a MSD 6AL. And one more thing guys the reason why i am not going for the EFI is that i have an old car. 1995. So i have to do ALL the wirings. And secondly my dad does not know this. So the work on my car should not be more than a Day. i.e. , My Car Should Go to The Garage in the Morning and back in my garage by evening.

Is this the same engine that has run only 10,000 Km and that you now have on sale for 80K without the ECM?
