So.Cal. Datsun shops

Hello everybody,
i recently purchased a 1971 Datsun 510 2 door.
supposedly the engine was built by Rebello Racing but i'm not sure and i'm also not sure when it was done.
but the L20b engine internals are highly modified.
i have dual mikuni sidedraft carbs @44mm.
i also have reverse H-pattern transmission.

i'm not sure where to start working on the car (doesn't run well and makes different noises from everywhere)

and here's the question....
i live in orange county(irvine) in "recently not so sunny" california.
can some people refer me to datsun specialist shops for me to take my car?
thanks
