4.6 Hydrolocked; bent rod; engine swap?

My daughter drove her 96TB through a very large puddle and hydrolocked her engine and bent a rod or something. What a racket. Engine will run but it is not drivable. It will tear itself apart soon.

I am contemplating an engine swap ($650 used plus misc. parts). I studied the manual and spent some time under the car on stands in my garage. It looks like an impossible job without car a lift. I donít see how I can get to the engine bolts from the trans and most everything else is so tight.

I this doable? Should I junk the car?
