Which of them used another manufacturer's motor?
Both worlds = then vs. now, not bastardizing the vehicle with random manufactirer's parts. If the modern twist is the point, they can MPFI a 3rd-gen with an Air Gap manifold or just bolt on an aftermarket kit.
Personally, I think it would be quite impressive if they chose to duplicate the 327 that was stroked outto 418 years ago and perhaps inject that.
