Check the web for an engine from Japan. I had a friend who found a salvage yard that got him one here in the states from a Japanese salvage yard.
However, you'll need MUCH MORE than an engine to make this work!
For starters, you'll need an engine wiring harness, wiring harness for the computer (interior of the car), the Computer, different fuel pump [and pray that it fits the current gas tank or you'llneed another gas tank], fuel line alterations, fuse box to accomadate more/different fuses, the list goes on. And the labor increases severely. [Also, did they make a fuel injected engine which bolts up to your carbureted engine?]
Is your only/main problem the carburetor? (If so, I'm sure you can find one online, it'll be a littel expensive, but more affordable and less time consuming than trying to change from the carbureted system to the fuel injected system). The other parts of the engine are still available in most places (you'll probably have to order them where you are, but we can get them in the states, so they are available). Good luck.
