Bent valves?






Okay so my 05 STi has recently been totaled with minor damage to the motor (radiator, hoses ripped, and belt came off) everything else is fine except the car. I bought another 05 STi but as a shell no motor and drivetrain and want to swap everything over to the shell from the wrecked one. But Iím not sure if the valves were bent since the timing belt came off from what i remember when it happened, the car turned off in the impact so could of one of the valves still be bent?

Only way to know for sure is to compression test it. No use in speculating based on external damage.
