out to a newer one? If so, which kind? The current engine is a V8 5.0L, I believe an Oldsmobile engine.
I am looking for an engine with a lot more power for those times when it's needed. One that takes off faster and uses a lit'l less gas? Is that possible?

Putting a Chevy engine in your car is too much work. You may try a 350 olds. One thing you must know is that You will trade gas mileage for power. In a car the size of yours, there is no such thing as good mileage and lots of power. If you do want power, you could find an older Cadillac 500 cubic inch engine, and fit it in there. Another thing to think about is the weight of the engine, your suspension was designed for an engine the weight of the 307. Try this link, and see what they have to offer for your engine.http://store.summitracing.com/

yes. it is an olds 307, good engine, low power. you could put many engines in its place, including a chevy 305, 350, 400. pretty much any GM small block.
