Default 1994 Accord 2.2l

Got a 1994 Honda Accord for free. Was over heating and it won’t start. Ran a compression test and from left to right 70, 140, 120, 70.....
No oil in the coolant
No coolant in the oil
No thermostat
The outer 2 spark plugs were black as coal and the inner 2 looked normal.
Spark plug holes were filled with oil and the spark plug boots were cracked.

It also feels like it may have jumped time.

Any ideas?

Possible Vtec swap?

The head is warped. It pulled up at the ends, which is why cylinders 1 and 4 are unacceptably low while 2 and 3 are normal.

Usually overheating bad enough to do that can damage the rings too, so yeah, if you are up to it, Vtech swap.
