What can I replace the original engine with?
So long story short. My timing belt a couple of years ago broke, resulting in the pistons colliding and damaging the cylinders. I had the pistons re-machined but she failed the state inspection due to weak cylinders. I plan on replacing the piston rings as a first step but was wondering as a last ditch effort can i replace the engine entirely. Therein lies the question. Should i replace it with one of the same make, model, and year. Or can i use a different one entirely.

Is this a good question?
