Exclamation 1998 S70 Engine Compatability

Good day all,
I'm looking into an S70 with VIN#YV1LS5544W1471226, this seems to be pointing me in the direction of a B21E Motor. If that is true, what motors/years can I use to swap out the long block on this car?
It has a blown head gasket and I'm not comfortable with how it was operated or I'd just replace the gasket. I'd prefer to find a donor motor and need to know what my options are without doing any mods to the existing vehicle.
Thanks!!
NIck

your VIN says you have the B5254S engine. That's the naturally aspirated 2.5L 5 cylinder. Other models with this would be the 96/97 850s (base, not turbo'd) and the 98-99 S/V/C70s again with the base NA engine. Should be really easy to find - check out car-parts.com for recycle yards near you.

You can't use a 99. It went to coil on plug and electronic throttle.
