The L26 is newwer and prices are real good. I got a L26 with 38k on it for $350 Think looked brand new. A bit more tuning because of the higher compression ratio. If you can get a L26, get it.

You should be fine. I will suggest that you put a mechanical oil pressre tester on before you start it the first time. Then crank it untill you have full pressure. Then crank it again. Sometimes the oil puimp has a hard time priming and if it starts your bearings will be gone.
