Default Rolled Subaru with a 2.2 motor in it, is motor any good?

I just bought a Subaru wagon with a 2.2 motor in it hoping to swap it out with my 1.8 motor thats in my 1995 Subaru Impreza. i havn't got the car at the house yet, but I robbed the MAF off if it today and there is motor oil in the air intake. I know fluids get where they shoudent when a car rolls, is this something I should worry about though? Anything I should do before I try to turn the motor over?

It's probably fine. I've installed used engines from rollovers before. You might want to pull the spark plugs and crank it over to blow out any oil that might be in the cylinders. Expect it to smoke a lot out the exhaust until it burns off off all the oil in the cylinders, intake manifold etc.

Tanke the plugs out before you crank it. This will make sure that the rods don't bend if one cylinder is full of oil.
