...build me a motor...

....never mind what I went through to get to this point....it sucked...but I now have the option of sourcing a running 3.2 to bolt up to my '73 RS clone, or waiting a few weeks and having one built. A couple "pelicanites" have offered to dig into their parts piles and build on a 3.2 case....vs a 3.0 case. I've read through Waynes top engine picks.... and have come up with some ideas....trying to get 225-250 hp with off-the-shelf parts....without killing me $$$-wise. I can't run carbs as I live at 8100 ft and work at 5000 ft. So...before I commit...I'd like some input. In answer to the question..."why don't you do it yourself"...simple answer is...I'm going to, next time. I have a beautiful completed RS conversion with it's butt-end up in the air waiting for a motor...it deserves a motor...one that runs. I have a '76 2.7 targa that will be the next backdate and rebuild the motor project
