Default Breakerless swap on lh 2.2

I've been doing some hunting and can't seem to find what I'm looking for. First of all I'm looking to do a breakerless swap on my 87 244, my Chrysler box died and the wiring harness is shot. Anyway, I'm planning on using a 242gt distributor and have a turbo ignition box...will this box work with an na setup? I don't see why not?
Also, if anyone has the wiring diagram for this setup, or any anything else I might be missing?
Thanks!

It probably would run, but why??? Timing map will be not good for NA. Get a Bosch LH2.2 distributor, and an EZK2.2 ignition box. Cut the harness out or make one, not that hard.

The timing curve is built into the distributor.

The breakerless box and distributor are far more reliable than the Chrysler sourced ignition computer.

Yes. This is why I'm doing the swap.
The distributor I want to use has a vac advance and probably a decent curve at that.
Anyway,
I found the diagram....

All I need now is to figure out how to tell 2.2 fuel what engine speed is

run the orange wire from 2.2 to the coil done and done, at least i think its the orange wire, may be the gray one. its a 2 pin connector that goes to the chrysler harness

you run a wire from the - to the grey wire in the harness (i think its grey, dont quote me on that. I think its pin 1 on the LH ecu.)

Check the diagrams on volvowiringdiagrams
