87 prelude probs

Ok so I bought an 87 prelude and it has some problems, I need a new timing belt. The person said that when they broke it they were coming to a stop and shut the car off right away. Now I havent worked on it yet but I will this weekend, what are the chances ill need a new engine?

You won't know until you have a look at the head or try to turn the engine. It's possible to get away with minor or no damage -- happened to my '84 -- but it's more luck than skill.
