Roy,Your best bet is a small block Chevy 350 (5.7) engine. "There's no replacement for displacement." This is a common swap and installation kits are available. The small block Chevy engine is readily available which makes the prices reasonable. Check Craigslist. You'll get the most power for the least amount of money and it will be reliable when you're done. Here's a site where you can get the kit.http://www.jegs.com/p/Trans-Dapt/Hamburgers-S10-V8-Engine-Swap-In-a-Box-Kits/1589023/10002/-1What exactly do you want to know about Nitro? Do you know the smog laws for the state that you live in concerning modifications?Let me know what your specific questions are.DJ
