I saw the LT1Q a few months back, I was trying to get
the owner to drag race with me, but he said the tranny
was pretty sensitive to all the low end torque, and
needed to round up a spare before he'd race it.  Also,
the motor didn't completely fit, I think the air box,
and the crank pulley was kind of hanging out the front
of the car.  The thing sounded mean as hell though! 
I'd go for the Audi V8, aftermarket EFI will open up
the intake, put a good exhaust on it and you'll be
close to LT1 power.
