variable pitch that is adjusted without the engine running is better than fixed.Im not nuts,I was tested(big bang theory)hcompton is correct a boxer style lycoming or continental from a GPU is best.The chevy needs to be isolated from the prop because of thrust loads. Use a stroker if you use a chevy power unit. 396 small blockor 434 small block will make 300 H.P. at 3,000 rpm easy.If you use a 350,also use a psru with 3:2 ratio and it will work great
