Default Engine choice

I am considering building a Corsa Spyder which is based on Triumph chassis. But I would like to use something more interesting than the Triumph 4 pot engine.

Suggestions please ☺

It needs to be reasonably lightweight and readily available. Preferably with carbs rather than injection to fit with the look and feel of the car. My list so far:

Mazda Mx5 - did that run carbs?
Dolomite Sprint
Lotus twin cam - probably too expensive
Coventry Climax - probably too rare and too expensive

Cheers Robin
