i have been thinking about an ls swap but i suck at saving money. everytime i get a few hundred dollars together i end up spending it on something else. so i have been trying to find a way to swap for cheap. it is a lot easier for me to spend $300 5 times than it is for me to spend $1000 all at once. so i decided to just build the engine peice buy peice. im pretty sure i want the Ls because of the torque, low comp, and ease of install but i am open to some other suggestions. but my question is can i just go to the junkyard and buy the parts peice at a time? is there anything i should look out for? basically anything that can or should be upgraded i will buy the right stuff, just need whatever can be got for cheap. OR what about trying to find a messed up engine? is there anything i should not get? how hard would it be to get one working since most everything would get replaced before it goes in the car anyway? Basically what im saying is that im a noob and im cheap can somebody give me a hand?
