Honestly, if you're thinking about doing the heads too, I'd go ahead and build a complete longblock out of the car, giving yourself more time to do things properly.

Then it's a simple weekend swap to install the new engine. If you actually buy a complete engine for donor parts, you can then sell your complete longblock...so long as your rods are still inside it

As for the build, I'm biased in that I've always built my own. Now with IAG, it's hard to beat the warranty aspect but I'm sure having the shop do the labor also approaches the price of the shortblock itself.
