In my opinion the best way to go would be an FC chasis RX-7. you can pick up 7's with blown engines on the cheap and the v6 should fit, assuming you have custom motor and tranny mounts. The FC's (86-91) are well balanced and well desinged despite being older than a 240.

okayy thanks , i was looking at a 93 rx7 with no motor for like $600 but the floor had been cut out of it . i was already leaning towards the rx7 but just wanted some more opinions , thanks for all the help .

Yeah man, If you can get a 93-95 chasis go for it, I wish I had a car like that when I was 16. All the RX-7s were well built sports cars, so pick your favorite body style and work around that. I just love the FC, which is why I recomended it. But if you like the FD then look for that cause they are just as sick, and have a timeless body style. Honestly, the FD will never EVER look old.

cool , yeah i like the style of the FC but my cousin had (got totaled) a 93 FD with a corvette 6.0L and it was raised body raised to fit the motor, so he gave me alot of the inspiration to do it different .thanks for all the help , if i have any isues when i do get the car and everything il deffinently send you a msg. im planning on having the car and motor in my garage and being installed by spring break but there are probably gonna be some bumps in the way . i will send you some pictures of the completed project when i get everything sorted out , thanks again
