You are making a bad assumption. Unlike us, not everybody who looks at this board is from North America. The 2.6L motor was produced for other markets until the 280ZX came out.
However, the original poster never explained what he meant by hassle. That could play a bigger factor. If he doesn't want to change from carbs to f.i. or vice versa, he may be limiting himself. Also, think of turbocharger plumbing and other things that could be necessary in a swap. Easy for some people, but I'd probably just empty my pocketbook to get somebody else to do the work for me.
