Yeah, since handling is important, I always recommend the LS V8, since they are lighter than both the iron-block SBCs (which are cheap, but super heavy) and the super complex and power limited M60. And yes, you can get an M60 to fit in a Yugo (or an E30 or E36), but it's going to take crazy amounts of fab work. Not really worth it IMO when there is already something out there which is lighter, more reliable, has more power potential, easier/cheaper to maintain, and fits without any requiring any major fab work.
