92 Prelude - Blown Head gasket. New engine, or repair?

I was posting before that i was having heating problems, well i fixed my heating issues by replacing my whole cooling system. Car does not overheat. My problem is that one day as i was driving and my car overheated, i was on the highway and did not have time to pull out. So my head gasket blew. I am debating on fixing the head gasket, as i dont know what other damage i made to the engine. Or just replacing my engine. I have the 92 prelude 2.3. What would be a good engine for this car?

It can be fixed but if you wanted to swap you could always get the H22a.

^The 4g prelude is about to be 2 decades old, your simple question has been covered many times in great detail, search, google, etc.

most likely you probably warped your head. you have to go to the machine shop to get it shaved. get a new head gasket. but i woulda rather get a swap.

get a full H22a or just get the H22a head and swap it on your motor, all in all both are pretty easy.

if you do it yourself, fix it. I would get a swap. I would NOT pay $1,000+ to get it fixed though
