Is an elan fitted with a 711m block twin cam engine less desirable (ie worth less) than an L blocked car?

My Elan has a 711 "tall block". More torque and Horsepower from 1700cc so to me it's more valuable. Perhaps if the car was original with original engine than I would say maybe the L block was more valuable. :)
