Always begin with the most cubic inches you can muster if you're looking for a combination that will pull like Jack the Bear on pump gas. My best advice for a street or street/strip motor would be to look for a combo that makes at least 400ft/lbs of torque at 2000 rpm, then reaches peak torque at 3500-4500 rpm, depending on the rear gear ratio.
There are a couple of 400 combos on this list of motors that I Dyno-simmed.

There are 108 combinations listed here. Knock yourself out....
