Hey guys, I've been searching around some all over the internet trying to figure things out. First, let me say that I'm actually not building a pulling tractor. I'm wanting to build a Jr. funny car for my kids, but front engine with a small diesel for power. The plan is to mate what ever motor I end up with to a powerglide, and either build a rear end housing, or use a chopped down Chevy 10-bolt. Now, we're going to be running this in  ET bracket racing, so there's no real limit other than space and weight I'm shooting for around 50hp  to start with, then eventually build it up to around 115-130hp, which should get it into the 11.75-12.0 et. But I have no idea which motor would suit my needs for this, 


Here's a picture of the body we're planning on using, and we're going to build our own chassis for it



Thanks for any advice guys
