Have a look at my build thread (link in signature). You might find something useful there and, hopefully, I will be ahead of you on the engine swap - if I can get this front suspension rebuild out of the way.
I've done a lot of research and made a lot of decisions already, but I don't have the "been there, done that" point of view to give you all the answers yet.
Let me suggest that you check out BRD Hotrods. They make a (pricey) swap kit that includes custom motor mounts and trans mount. I'm going with these guys because they say their kit is guaranteed to work with no clearance issues - even for a car like mine with factory air, PS, and PB. They also sell mid-length headers that are not supposed to have any clearance issues.
Again, take a look at my thread. You're also welcome to PM me with any particular questions you may have.
