Default Rolled 2.2 Outback, is motor any good. Updated

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?

UPDATE:

I picked the car up today (Had a guy with a 300hp Jeep ram the car up on the trailer you should try it sometime it was a blast). But there is a potential HUGE problem.. I didn't notice it before I bought it, but when it was rolled the frame tweaked on the passenger side and rammed the plastic cam gear into the top of the wheel well and broke the cam gear that the timing belt is attached to. the middle of the cam gear is separated from the outside where it makes contact with the timing belt. So when I was pulling it home I had somebody following me, they pulled me over and made me an offer on the car. I would like to keep the car if there is little to no chance this messed the engine up but I am not sure. Anyone have any thoughts on this. I was thinking it possibly could have bent some valves and broke some rods, but I am no expert I just go off what I herd about timing belts snapping.

So the questions I would like for someone with a clue to answer are

1. What are the chances the cam gear shattering messed up the whole motor?

2. Will a 98 Subaru Outback motor swap with a 99 Subaru outback limited motor?

If the motor was running when that gear was broken, one or both heads is probably toast. Pull them off to check.

idk how much money you have invested into this but i would just sell the car. Rebuilding the heads and whatever else is wrong could cost as much or more then a good running used longblock

Indications that the valves have contacted the pistons. It's probably going to be easy to see, there should be marks in the carbon baked onto the pistons and possibly valves that will have dents or scrapes showing.
