Default 1997 Impreza Brighton motor question

If I'm looking at buying an Impreza Brighton, and was told the motor jumped timing, quick question hopefully simple answer, do I just need to re-time the motor, or should I plan a R&R. I've gotten mixed reviews when looking it up. I already have a L wagon, but am looking for something smaller and less weight to have fun with. Thanks in advanced!

97+ should be the phase 2 EJ22 which means that it is an interference motor so valves might have been damaged.

Do a compression and leakdown test first (once you retime it), maybe you got lucky. If not, you might be able to get away with buying a used EJ22 for cheap rather than doing some headwork.

Thanks I just checked it out and played around with it, it seems like the front compression is extremely high (170+ psi range) and the rears are reading nothing
