Questions for junkyard builders 4.6 builders

When it comes to the bottom end, are y'all tearing it down to the block and having it cleaned up and buying new pistons (stock or otherwise) etc? Or are Y'all just giving it a once over and then slapping on the topend?

I gave mine a once over. I had the heads cleaned, slightly shaved to ensure they were flat, and valve springs and retainers installed. Ran me $550.

Mine had 42k miles on it. It runs very well. It's out of an 04 Crown Vic.

If it's a stock rebuild I always do rings and bearings in the junkyard engine, and I mean a junkyard that you have to go pull the engine yourself. If it's a reputable place that gives a warranty then I just throw it together and hope it works.
