The 350 is externally the same dimensions as a 305. If you can put a 305 in there, there's no reason you can't do a 350 as well. I would suggest maybe getting an LS-style engine (LS1, LS2, LS3). They're compact, relatively light, and make a lot of power right out of the box, and now there's a lot of aftermarket support for them.
