modern new engine in my 1984 caprice
i have a 1984 caprice, i would like to replace my existing V8 305 engine with a new modern fuel injection engine with similar power for everyday use that will comply with my existing transmission and other major components. any suggestions of engine type and brand. thank you

After all the time and expense in a project like that it would be a "resto- mod"- buy a copy of Hot Rod magazine and see how people are updating the old cars-
