92 Prelude with h23a blue top vtec swap good deal?

New guy here. I'm looking into getting a 4th gen prelude for a project/weekend car. I use to own a 5th gen but sold it a few years back. I found a 92 prelude with a h23a blue top vtec swap that isn't installed correctly. Do you think it will be an easy fix? What do you guys think?

1992 Honda Prelude Need sold now!

You may get lucky and it just needs to be tuned....M0B5TA is the expert on this engine. See if you can get him to take a quick look at it. Watch out, he isnt always the nicest to dumb questions.

If it needs to be tuned I'm all for it. I just have to figure a way to get it towed to my place. Going to talk to the seller later tonight. Here's some more pictures he sent me in the morning.
