What is your budget? If its a normal budget for a 20 year old, Id go with buidling a 350 or 383 smallblock.

Go with a 350. Cheaper parts, plentiful parts, easy to build.
The first engine I ever built was a 350 and it's still running strong.

or, if you are a ford man, go with a 302. Just like the 350...only not as good
