Yes, but if you are just looking for a runner, as opposed to max performance, it shouldn't matter.
X2 the early motor will do just fine as a runner.
BTW to do ignition control with out a dist. cost would be about $300. connections are:
+12 ign sw
coils x 6
crank trigger x 2
map sensor x 3 (or 1 vacumm hose)
If you went with a carb - leave the injectiors/fuel rail in place to plug the holes in the head.
