Is similar job as using a V6 in 84. IOW this swap is a big job to a very big job and have to rewire everything to the engine and ECM for 84 because 87 and up L4 are very different engines and use different ECM. Plus many other things will need to be mod'ed or replaced because 84 was made only for the 84-86 engine. Even using 85-86 L4 engine has changes and needs some work to fit 84.
And doesn't add much power for the effort and money spend.
