Favorite V8 I have never owned is the aluminum 215 from GM.

The Ford 5.4 Aluminum in the Ford GT.  Smooth and powerful as well as anvil tough. Lower end built so strong that some have boosted it up to 1500HP in stock form. Of course the car it is attached to helps enhance the opinion.

That's way rad. Is there a build thread where I can learn/see more?

The Ferrari F129 3.5L 5 valves/cylinder is it for me. Smooth, fast to rev and as installed in an F355  with a Capristo exhaust there is nothing short of an F1 engine that has a better exhaust scream. It doesn't hurt that it looks pretty decent too.

I enjoyed playing with the Lamborghini small V-8 used in several smaller models.

Chevy 283 or Ford 312.  Best ever built!
