TBI to MPI

Some days ago I found a Multi Port fuel injection system from a 4.3 Chevy engine used by the Mercruiser inboard line. The injectors are on the top of the intake runners instead of done on a spider like what`s on vehicles.
My truck is a 92 with TBI. I was looking at the MPI system and wondering how hard it would be to adapt over to it? I have a set of Vortec heads that have to be used with the MPI. Multi port to me is one of the best forms of injection out there, plus it`s different look would make a better wow factor when the hoods opened as it`s not a system seen on vehicles. Anyone know how I could go about adapting it over? What computer would I need?
Do aftermarket company`s make a computer that will work with this system?
I looked at a removed 4.3 Vortec out of a boat online and there`s so much crap on it you can`t even see the intake and I surely want avoid all that.
Any helps greatly appreciated.

Yeah, I didn't know they offered it for the 4.3L, but it makes sense. The 5.7L Marine version is a popular swap for the 96+ vortec fullsize trucks.
