Default engine replacement

As a follow up to my last post. My options are replace the head gasket on the current engine (170k) or replace the engine with one that has 110k BUT has been sitting in a shop for 4 years (dry, protected)

To clarify my question in the last thread, The engine I can use for the replacement was mated to a manual tranny. My car is auto. Will this create additional issues?
