73 roadrunner motor questions

I have a 73 roadrunner I bought when I was deployed 2.5 years ago. Well I'm sitting on another deployment and trying to save up some money and decide what motor I wanna put in it. I want something that got alot of take off. I dont know if I wanna put a standard transmission in or an automatic.. I am so unsure. They said it was paint ready but when I got home It wasnt paint ready. There is some welds to fix and redo no big deal. Where can I get a good motor for a reasonable price that sounds good. I'm willing to spend up to let's say 9000 ish for the motor?? I also need a transmission. I am undecided if ima color it blue or green.. If anyone is able to help me I would relay appreciate it.

Welcome to the site..... Thank You for your service also.... With that being said... Not sure what your mechanical ability is? But >>>>>
Finish off the body and paint.... Then send it over to the interior shop to get done..... forward it to the suspension shop for a complete rebuild front to back... Shove it off over to the mechanical shop for a good running 440 with a 727 trans, and some 3.91 rear gear....

But if you like 4 speeds, then do the 4 speed... I like 4 speeds if I don't have to drive the vehicle much... But if I drive them a lot. I prefer the automatic myself at this point in my life.

Just my 2 cents

I have heard good things about Blueprint Engines on other Forums.
