I have no idea what I'm doing

Hey y'all so I just got a free 92 prelude that has been sitting for years. The owner says that she thinks the engine is bad because of a bent rod????? I know nothing about honda or import cars, as I am a diesel truck guy. I seriously have no idea where to start and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. Is the engine ruined, if so, is it even possible to get another engine online somewhere?

92 its either an f22 or h23 but its easier to find an h22 motor. check local junk yards first.

Thanks man! Any idea how I can tell which motor it is? Is one VTEC and one not? What's the H22?

Re: I have no idea what I'm doing

Depending on how long it's been sitting, and what else it needs, it may not be worth it. Replacing an engine isn't THAT prohibitively difficult, but if it's been sitting for a long time, a lot of the plumbing probably needs to be replaced, dry rotted tires, brakes, etc... It may add up to substantially more $ and headache than the car is worth (a few grand depending on mileage)
