M20 6 cyl Motronic ign swap to Transistorised coil ign

Gidday all

Looking for information about a job im going to be doing on an E30 M20 2.0ltr 6 cylinder engine, i am swapping the current Motronic (DME) ignition system (Cam-mounted dizzy) for the older Transistorized coil ignition system (TCI-I) side of block-mounted dizzy, it is being used in a race application.

Any advice on things i will need to know would be handy, i have all the workshop manuals and have researched removal of all parts, im just wondering if i'll have to re-wire any sensors to the ecu or anything like that and if the block mounted dizzy will fit straight in after bung is removed and No.1 cyl is at TDC.

All imput will be greatly appreciated!!
