I would say so, beats dragging the engine block around the garage and trying to balance it on the oil pan. http://www.freshalloy.com/ Check www.summitracing.com (http://www.summitracing.com) or www.jegs.com (http://www.jegs.com) they carry engine stands and hoists. I dont think they are more that $100 but I haven't checked. If you want you could weld your own, i have seen an artical that explained how to make a custom one to wheel you engine around the garage with, and it seemed pretty easy. Any how good luck. http://www.freshalloy.com/

I bought my engine stand from Pep Boys for $75. You dont have to order one by mail...

If you just need a place to store an engine for a while then an empty tire is a perfect place to drop and engine and let it sit... keeps the weight off of the oil pan.

Read the various project articles they have on sr20de.net. For more perspectives and ideas, look into other SCC projects, especially those written up by Mike Kojima. This month's (August 2001) issue of SCC has a particularly thorough article on a pro-grade VG30 buildup.
