Questions about my new car

I just bought my 2002 focus svt for 400 dollars from a aunts fiancÚ all he did is drive it to work and back but he sold it because the timing belt snapped and now it only runs on 2 cylinders but I'm hoping that it is just some bent valves luckily my dad has a friend who owns a shop and is working on it for me for cheap but everything else is working fine but I'm still wondering if I got a dicent deal. What do u think?

02 SVT for $400 yes that's a great deal It will cost a bit more than you paid to rebuild her but you got away with a steal. You can part out for way more than that if it turns out to be a complete mess.

pics?

Yea definatley gonna try my hardest also it is my first car but I have a pretty extensive knowledge on cars already. Also I am hoping that soon after I do I can start putting mods on it like a turbo,intercooler,exhaust,and etc... So if anyone has some ideas of what parts I should put on it or where to find some decent prices on parts just tell me
