Any Suggestions? No motor need help-2000 Mustang gt

Ok guys/gals, I have a 2000 gt that i bought as a roller car (no motor/tranny) This car was lightly wrecked with no frame damage and deployed air bags so was totaled. I bought it to make a street/strip car. I need a motor but am not sure if i want to stay Modular or go to a push rod motor. so i have some questions.

1. What do you guys recomend push rod/modular?

2. Can a push rod motor be put in and all the gauges work?

3. does anyone have a motor/tranny for sale that a poor man can afford? I know where a whole car is totaled that was hit rear and front for 1700. Is this a bad or good price? still runs and has 85k approx on it.

any suggestions and help is appreciated. TIA
