Were you looking at building your own chassis? Have connections with roundy-round chassis builders, if you have a design.

What do you want to know? They are pretty much just like an EG and you can do some wild stuff with them. Craziest one I've built was a stroked (78.75mm) and sleeved (only taken out to 99.5mm) EG. For your goals though, simple rod and piston combo for the shortblock and you're set.
Cams, valves, buckets, etc are all available...just have to be resourceful and know what you can/can't do.
Are you planning to run twins or a single turbo?
