EFI Distributor in a carb'd car? Jun 1, 2017 18:27:43 GMT -5

Hello, I'm almost done with the engine rebuild on the ol' Justy. One of my last things to figure out is the new distributor. The car is an 89 that came carbureted. I just had the block freshened up and got a rebuilt EFI head with intake manifold that I adapted a 40mm Harley CV carb to. To my surprise (not surprised at all-these little Subarus are very strange compared to my usual Imprezas), the carb cars distributor didn't fit in the EFI head. So I ordered a new EFI distributor. It just showed up and fits well in the head, but now I have a 4 wire distributor and only 2 wires on the plug for the old distributor. Any ideas? I'm hoping that I only need to use two wires on the new distributor (sounds too good to be true) or perhaps replace some of the guts in the new distributor with some guts out of the old distributor? I looked briefly for wiring diagrams, but the ones I found give no specifics on what the wires are for. Any ideas? I'm so close to being able to try to start this thing up and this just became my biggest roadblock thus far.
