  How about a Porsche 914?  Mid engine, close to 50/50 weight ratio 
already, should be room under the hood for a vertical install, same 
bolt pattern as an air cooled, competetion pedigree on the tranny and 
remove the spare tire up front to install the radiator and you still have 
two small trunks left!  Oh, and a targa top to boot!  :-)
