Default LSx budget swap...what would you guys do?

Okay so I'm contemplating doing this...always wanted to, but never really had the opportunity. I'm looking at picking up an E34 or E39 BMW wagon and installing some variety of cheap, domestic metal. My goals are 300~325 horsepower and a T56 (though a six speed might be way out of the budget...at least a T5). I plan on trying to source everything from wrech a part, and I'm going to try and do it for under $3,000 (obvously not rebuilding anything, not hiring anything, building brackets and mounts myself, etc, etc).

What would you guys look for as far as donors go?
Ha! I updated!

2001 GSXR 1000 that kind of rides and is mostly in a couple boxes.

Roketa GK13L buggy. Hoping for some fun in the snow!
