Look at the V6 out of an S-10. Short, light, and plenty of power. You would have to stretch the hood to run a straight 6 and then the proportions get out of whack. We did a "T" sedan way back when and used a Datsun 4 banger and 4 speed. Worked out great and sounded like the original T motor.

good logic on the v6 rochie vs an inline. maybe something in the ford line of eco/boost, maybe.

I would be a fan of a V 6 myself. You can get a lot of horses out of one of them Chevvy 4.3 V6 engines. Even smaller would be the 2.8.

best yet a 2.3 turbo motor ... and it's matching 5 speed trans

40 mpg to boot too and way way more motor than a V6
