Chemical dip for engine blocks

Hey guys hows it going,

Alright, I am trying to get my little foot in the door with engine building and and one of the things I want to do is have a 55 gallon drum to dip the blocks in myself(saves money). Well I have found myself a solid 55 gal good drum and I am now trying to figure out what kind of chemical?? I should go with for totally stripping the grease, grime, and paint of the blocks. And is it necessary to heat it or is that just for a faster cleaning. I am not really concerned for something that is safe for aluminum. I am willing to put a electric heating element in the tank if it is necessary but what I really want is a chemical that will do a good job at room temp. It is not like I am a busy bee so letting it soak for while is not a problem.

any info is appreciated!!
