svt zx3 engine demensions

hey, i was just wondering what the size of the engine bay is, so i could a good idea of what could possibly fit in there. my car has less than 70k, so i was thinking at about 100 putting a (possibly) shelby engine in it. now, i am a noob who doesnt know much about cars, so yea.....

i know itd have to be converted to rwd, and my friend said that it wouldnt fit, and if it did, it would be burning out every chance it got. so, i am just trying to get some help from more experienced people. any help is greatly appreciated!!

The engine bay is a lot larger than you would think.

wow. i just want to keep it forever. i hate big cars, which is why i hate mustangs. and i just got one slighlty off topic question. when i rev my engine, it sounds like my car is dying.... like literally coughing. and all my friends call it a ladybug. so i was just curious as to why it sounds like its 10-15 yrs old. also, the car seems to have ignition problems, with a newer ignition....
