If you replace the head gaskets and have the head reworked(planed and regrind with seals) then you know what you've got. But still a tired bottom end and bearings. Used engine you dont know what you've got, end of story. But if you buy a rebuilt long block, and swap what parts are needed, and useually externall for future needs the you have the best of both worlds. You also need to consider the overall VALUE of the car now and future. Good luck.
