V8 best bang for buck?

I currently own a 1996 automatic 300zx N/A with a locked up engine decided to get a daily driver and turn my Z into project car. Iíve heard people say I should just put a ls1 in it but I also know it takes a lot of fab work to fit in it and Iím also wanting to eventually turbo it.. Iíve read some more about a q45 and other V6 and 4 banger engines, my question is what would be the best engine for performance increase and isnít too expensive to work on? Iím not sure my budget yet but Iím looking into getting 500-600 horse power. Ps, itís automatic and Iím not sure if I want to swap it to manual or not...
