First things first, good or bad, replace that friggin timing belt


well, thats a good suggestion, but i would make sure the body is worth saving. Check under the car and all the shock and strut mounts for rust. if they are rust free, go for it. the engines are a piece of cake to work on. and if you have trouble with the engine, just swap somethin else in.
