Question Which engine or donor car?

I'm planning to swap a B230 into my 73 145, and run it with microsquirt. Yoshifab recommends a 1989 or later non turbo engine as the internals were improved geometries and usually the engines were not run hard their whole lives.

I have found a source of engines, with compressions tests performed for a decent price as a starting point.

My question is would it be better to start from scratch with an engine and a microsquirt? Or a donor car, to try and salvage all the rest of the systems to move over to the 145?

And which is easier to build from, the LH 2.2, LH 2.4 or LH 3.1?
