Who makes the best flat noses?

Question for the skoolie gurus. I'm looking for a flat nose front engine somewhere around 30-36ft, preferably with under storage but that's secondary. Who makes these and what are the best engine/transmission combos that come in them.

Thanks in advance

Amtran genesis is the best FE. Or maybe a BBAA. DT466 or cummins 8.3 with anything but an allison at545.

Just depends on who can bend sheet metal the best, and drop it on a good chassis with decent components.
