Engine Guidance Please

So I have been out of the 02 world for 20 years and I've just now decided that I want another one. The looking is easy, the finding part is hard. What I want is a Roundie. A 72 would be perfect.

One big decision I need to make is on the engine I want. On my last 02 I had 45 DCOE Weber sidedrafts, a Shrick 304 and 9.5 to 1 pistons. It was a blast to drive but needed fairly constant attention like any motor with a little extra. I am not opposed to having some engine work done on the car I select, and as a matter of fact I would rather have a fresh motor.

So the bottom end would be 9.5 to 1 pistons and the top end would be a Shrick cam. As a car that would be driven more than it sits, should I go sidedrafts or injection? I'm thinking that injection would be easier to maintain in the long run, but that means I need to start looking for a tii which run a few more bucks. Any idea which option would produce the most hp?

I know I need to set this aside in making my decision but I just love the sound of a motor with sidedrafts and I love the look of a 4 banger with sidedrafts.
