You've got a good list. I'd reconsider the five "new" injectors unless you've got a lot of cash to dispose of. If the injectors are suspect, the nozzles can be replaced and the set recalibrated for a fraction of new.

A set of nozzles is about $100. To get them pop tested and shimmed is another $100. or so.

I'm not sure if the experts would choose the '85, but that's what I would use. That '83 is too pristine to mess with IMO.
