There's quite a few questions about this

Are you intending to keep the gearbox? or get an adapter plate? or swap entire engine and gearbox?
What gearbox type have you got?
Are you doing the job yourself or entrusting work to workshops?
Are you prepared for making up additional wiring looms as required?
Your van is old ... is it rusty and tired or a good one so that it's worth the hassle?
What kind of driving are you aiming to do?

The space in the engine bay is very generous so nearly anything should fit depending on your wallet and skills.
