Bent Rod? Help

I picked up a 84 325i for my son. The car is VERY clean and appears to have been taken care of.

The guy I bought it from bought it new and two years ago gave it to his daughter. This summer she tried driving through a large and deep puddle of water and the engine stopped.
I think it hydro-locked and bent the rod or a valve.

I think the best bet is to buy a used engine and swap it.

Any ideals or comments as to what I should do or where to find an engine.

thanks for any advice
