The only thing to worry about is if your present air filter housing is going to be in the way when you get done, I've installed one in an 86 CJ-7, but it had the MPI kit so it fit perfect. I just ran across a set-up for a CJ in a bone yard near here, hope this helps out, Later.
I was more concerned about the YJ master cyl pressure and volume being correct for the the 82 CJ brake components.
I'll have a 401 under the hood and hadn't thought about clearence problems, might want to start measureing to make sure it'll fit.
Has anyone else tried this setup before? Just to save me the trial and error time.
