Do you still have the stock carbs? If so, they can be tweaked to run extremely well if you have the older carbs. The new Datsun carbs sucked. That is what I had on my 1974 1/2 260z. I would suggest to stick with the stock L24 engine and build it properly while using the stock carbs. Guy in Atlanta could make those things run awesome.

I’m actually considering doing a mild refresh on the (non matching) 2.4 and building my 2.8 donor engine for racing.

The 2.4 could be my sons “learner motor”. A bit less power for a teenager and then we can have fun as another project down the road swapping in his “racer” 3 liter build. (It’s a bit easier on cash flow this way as well, as I’m planning for about a 50% possible “bloat” on my 25k ish build budget)

The old adage “twice as long and twice the price” sadly is very true.

Be glad you found them now and not later when the weather gets warmer, and they're more active.
