Here's a link for engine sizes. I'm using a 302 and c4 in my modified. Chosen for a couple reasons.
1. Weight
2. Distributor in front.
Chevy is about 2 inches shorter in length if you use a short water pump but the rear mount distributor causes clearance issues with the firewall and you'll likely need to move the motor ahead for clearance.
Other thing to watch for on 302 is oil filter placement on drivers side front. Depending on what steering you use you might need room around the filter.
