The 1.8l engine in 1990 to 1996 there non-interference so there should have been no damage to valves or piston. Can can check for damage by doing a compression test make sure all cylinder's are with in spec turbo models 117-145 psi none turbo 139-168.
Did u make sure the crank number1 piston is on compression stroke when u sent crank mark. You could have crank 180 dergress out
