Default 1800E Engine swap?

Hey, I was wondering what kind of engine I could throw into one of these if I were to restore one. I was thinking maybe an LS1 if it can be done.

I think a turbo 4 from a 740 would work or a 240 and there have been small block v8's done as well.

I always thought a B30 would be a nice swap. The big six from a 164E is the same as a B20 but with 2 extra cylinders. Offset rad, stiffer springs, and you'll probably want/need the power steering of the 164 too.
Should just bolt in!!?
