Have you considered using a big block motor?

No need for a big block. Most power I really want to run will be around 300-350hp. A bone stock LQ4 or LM7 stock with a tune will make that power and can be bought for under $1000.

Kool. I've heard of an LQ4 small block with an LS intake manifold making about 422 horses give or take. What tranny are you planning on using? A 4L80E, GM ATO Power Glide, Turbo 400?

More then likely the 4L80E, I would just grab the whole motor and trans from the donor vehicle. But at this point Im just gonna do a clutch in my truck and run it. Getting into an engine swap is just adding unneed complication to an already complicated project.

You'll love that tranny. Nah, I'm not trying to make it more complicated, just fishing for some info is all. You see, that engine and tranny combo I mentioned came up when I was talking to Speedway Motors about building a 1923 T-bucket. I plan on building it with some Ford Ranger parts, like the same rear end set up I have now: An 8.8 inch housing with 31 spline axles. It does have 4.10:1 rear gear ratios, but I plan on going to 3.73:1 with limited slip instead. And I thought it would be good to see what others were doing in their projects.

I didn't mean you were trying to make it more complicated, I haven't gotten real indepth with the engine swap research because I have more then enough to do on my project without adding more. Plus Im building a 72 Chevelle and a CB360 Cafe Racer. So I have more then enough projects to keep me busy.

Started to dissassemble my D70 rear. Ran into a problem. The spindle on one side is messed up. At one point or another someone smoked a wheel bearing and it overheated the spindle and warped it. I have to take another look at it, but I think Im gonna have to get another axle.

Im picking up another set of axles in the next couple weeks. Chevy kingpin front 60 and a D70 out of a 1ton Van. Getting a killer deal on the set. The rear 70 is out of a newer savana van so it has factory disk brakes which is a nice feature. Will save me alot of money on switching it over. The front I will probably just resell.
