Yup, sounds like an early I5 with CIS.  The CIS cars have a black colored
fuel distributor body, whereas CIS-E is aluminum colored.

CIS cars have some electronics, but not much.  US cars have the
oxygen sensor and frequency valve and an analog ECU.  The ignition has
a separate control module.  The US never got the 2.0 I5.  If you're
in a different country then it's possible that it's a 2.0 or 2.1.
