I wouldn't say any swap is better than any other, as they all have their advantages and drawbacks and everyone wants something different from the swap.
The LS4/F40 swap took me 3 years with lots of custom fab/machine work to accomplish + about 8K in parts. Most would not consider it worth the effort, but I really like it.
The LS4 is a nice looking fairly modern engine with plenty of power potential. The complexity, cost and amount of work necessary to complete this swap has discouraged me from doing one. You can get similar power potential with a 3800 turbo as Darkhorizon has demonstrated in his 10 sec 1/4 mile Fiero. Like Fieroguru though, I will stop short of saying that either engine is a better swap.
