Well the time has come to start buying parts for the v8 swap. But i have a question. Do you guys think it would be wise to buy the engine first, or the parts first. I will be having a shop do it so if i buy the engine they will be buying the parts and vice versa if i buy the parts they will track down an engine and buy it. Either way it will be about the same amount of cash seeing as im going to be buying a cam and stll and such also along with the actual conversion parts. So what do you guys think. Also has anyone had experience with the s10V8.com coated ehaders.

I would buy the block first and that will determine what parts you will need. Example: My block had some imperfections in the cylinder walls that honing would not take out, so the block got bored .030 over. That meant I needed .030 over pistons and rings. If I would have bought stock size I would have been screwed.
