advice on new engine for my Boxster

I bought a used low-mileage Boxster and -- 1000 miles into my ownership -- the IMS bearing on my Boxster failed and trashed the engine. Because I plan to keep the car and other than the engine, it's in great shape, I'm considering dropping a new engine into it. While the repair shop is looking for a new engine for me, what should I be wary of in a used engine? Obviously, I'm worried about a repeat of the IMS issue, but what else should I be aware of as common problems in used engines? Do they usually come with a warranty?
