I have the ATPL-theory.
Look at the possibility of CRI --> FAA CFI --> EASA FI.

It may seem odd, but neither transition, this way, requires minimum training, only "as required" followed by examination. It may be cheaper and easier for somebody with your instructional hours.

You do however need an FAA CPL/IR to get the FAA CFI, which may prevent this - depending upon your personal circumstances.
