ok first question is how much of the car are you wanting to cut up and still keep focus about it? are you keeping stuff like power steering and ac? do you want fwd or rwd?

of the top of my head these will fit tho
5.0
2.5 v6
2.3 dura
4.6 mustang motor
4.6 terminator motor
chevy small block will fit
and an rb26.
