I have had approx. 5 or 6 NTC3, and one of them I did drop in the OS 18
Way too much torque, and the torque steer made it difficult to drive.
There are many many good fast 12 engines that will have more than enough power for the car. Shaft driven cars do suffer from torque steer if they are over powered.
You will strip out the diff gears also if the car is over powered
The engines list in the other reply will be good choices for you, and not break the bank
