Seems that this install is possibly a bit more work than I initially thought.

Acft Spruce sells cables to order in any length, search aircraft engine controls.

I had an ETBI on both my RVX and my Sonerai (2180VW) Both worked very well and the Sonerai used a home-made airbox. The X used the Van's box with excellent results.It does however require a bit of mixture screw tweaking between seasons, otherwise a great TBI.
Be advised, yours having sat for 8 years may have dried the seals a bit, be wary of mixture issues when you get it going initially. If it persists, Ellison is very good about inspections and rebuild.
