Engine swap

I recently purchased a 2001 ranger. automatic 4wd. I was wondering what engine swap is the best for 4wd. I plan on making a street legal prerunner so i don't want anything ridiculous, but still fast. Also wondering if a manual swap with the motor would work better.

Want fast? 302, 331, 347, or put a S/C on your 4.0. The last 3 will cost you a lot more than the first.
Want more torque? 4BT Cummins

Want more torque? 4BT Cummins
Even more torque? 6BT Cummins just get rid of the firewall, or elongate the front clip
