If you were going to go EFI I would seriously consider a late 80's-mid90's TBI swap. It should be about as close to a bolt on to that setup as you'll find, you should be able to get the parts for cheap (should really be cheaper than a 4bbl carb swap unless you get really lucky with used parts), and will get about as good a mileage as you'll get out of it (you can get some killer MPG numbers out of them if you get them working right). The setup is all about low end, efficiency and driveablility and was used in heavy trucks and full sized cars with 305/350 from the factory.
