    Really depends on what you plan on building. If the car is going to be fairly light weight you can get by with a higher revving lower torque motorcycle engine. When curb weight starts climbing over 2000 pounds I'd personally rather have v6 with a turbo or supercharger. Going over 3000 pounds, give me any variant on the LSxxx v8 motors.

    if you've got the scooby donor you might want to look at the murtaya from adrenaline motorsport. a bit more pricey but a very, very good kit. you'll probably have more luck on the pistonheads kit car forum, this one is mainly for replica's, despite the name..

    If you are after locosts, westfield etc go and have a look at locostusa.com. They are a wealth of knowledge.

    I cant really help you even though i am building a locost
    a) i am in Australia
    b) mine is fully electric.

    I am sure those guys will get u well sorted on what you need to do with the subi as a donor.

    Cheers
