It's unibody you have to split the frame, and then u can put anything you want into it, I would do a ls3procharged t56 6speed with ford9inch be under 10k and would run 12s? But you should clearly put a lsx into it....

305 tpi or 350..

Another V6. I know that's not what you want to hear but converting a V6 car, like yours, to drop in a V8 requires a lot of modification and expense. My Nephew was going to do the exact same thing until he found the list, and it's a long one, of things that are needed to do it. HTH. -Jim
