One of my childhood dream builds was in fact a mid ship Crown Corvair.Back then the engine of choice was the 327's,but there where 350's swapped in them.

I know you said to exclude the LSx option.But to bring his to current day engines that fit your requirements the 5.3's is almost too prefect to be true.They are cheap to get and you get a engine that responds to a turbo very well and again right within the power curve you want with the power train you have to work with.Winding roads driving with a turbo behind you,yeah life shouldn't be that good.
