First you determine what kind of car you have, and how big the engine compartment is. You determine you skills at engine swaps and whether you need a bolt in swap or if you can fabricate something, then you need to know more about engines than what video games tell you.

Any automotive based engine can be put into any car, given enough fabrication skills.

We'd need more information on your particular car and what you want out of it.

Judging from your question, I believe you're getting in WAY over your head with an engine swap. If you want a fast car, start out with a solid base. Something RWD that already has a good sized engine, or at least one that can handle a lot of boost. I'm betting you don't have the ability to do the fabrication yourself (even an engine that's smaller that your original RARELY bolts right in, you need to do a fair amount of fabrication) and that is going to cost a ton to have done professionally.
