Converting to RWD isn't THAT difficult, you just need a good welder/fabricator...if I were you I'd take the SKY redline or the Solstice GXP engines...(although ecotecs are not my most desired list, I'd just do the LS1 with a rear mounted vette tranny)

The LS1 with a vette tranny would feel right at home More than enough space there.
