Did you buy parts and build your engine, or buy one already built? Thanks

I think the decision should come down to your personal level of confidence and/or competence on doing it yourself. I have always built my own and other than some hard learned lessons up front (mainly don't take shortcuts on the components; use a good forged crank, H-beam rods, forged pistons, etc) have had good success.

Do you think if you can get sponsored by an engine shop, they will give you a free engine?

most engine places may give you free labor or discount on prices. but if your getting free engines chances are your getting almost everything else paid for and you win all the time.
