If it's only oil leaks then it shouldn't be a big deal to use that engine. Just check the PCV valve if you have oil leaks because if it's clogged then you will have oil leaks soon again.

But on the other hand - getting a second engine and building on that can be a good idea because then you have time to do everything right and won't be without your car while you do the rebuild.
