Cool 1984 Nissan 4x4 king Cab Gutless 2.4

Hi all this is my first post so if I get something wrong Im sorry, My 84 King Cab is an outstanding truck it 4 wheels nice runs well etc... But has what I consider to be an absolutely gutless 2.4Z motor. It has an adverage of 140lbs of compression per cylinder, I have a Comp Cam 881196 cam in it,new timing chain and gears, Weber carb ( new ) MSD 6A Ignition etc etc etc... and still little to no power down low. Is there a mod I can do to the engine to get some low end out of it or am I better off to consider an engine swap and if so what would be a good choice as far as what engine to swap considering time,money,and outcome ( increased gains etc.../ vs cost and time ) I don't need a fire breather but would like a kick in the pants when I hit the gas and not have to wait what seems for ever for the engine to get up on the pipe before it has good pull, once it gets up on the pipe it runs quite well it just seems a life time getting there. Any input from those of you with experience in this area would be greatly appreciated, thanks ahead of time for your time and input. Al
