Put a wrench on the crank and the motor wouldn't budge

Pretty much this is all you can do. Seems like it just needs to free itself up. I doubt you'd have any mivec/valve contact issues.

Ive never heard of an engine siezing from being just sat there?

Have you tried rocking the car back and forward whilst in 1st gear? it will take two people to do this as the evo's a fatty, you should hear a click/clunk as the flywheel turns the crank a notch.

Dont wanna cause any more dammage but you could try bump starting the car?

They need to get a breaker bar and a socket and spin it clockwise. It'll budge. It has to.

I don't know that they pulled the plugs but they definitely tried cranking it by hand with a wrench.

I suggested this today to them. Waiting for results...

Yeah. If the penetrating oil doesn't work im going to tell them to get the biggest wrench/breaker bar they can find and force it. If it breaks a piston then I have to rebuilt it anyway...

Neither have I... Its almost impossible as there isn't much moisture in the motor...

This is the first thing I had them try. They said it didn't budge at all.

Why clockwise? It shouldn't matter should it?

Mivec is meant to be driven in one direction only. You *can* go backwards, but with the mivec actuators working against camshaft resistance, they may move enough to get close to a piston. Maybe even touch it, I'm not sure- but why risk it?

Personally, I wouldn't bother with penetrating oil in the cylinders - unless it's been sitting under water for those three months. Probably do more damage by using penetrating oil.

Take the gearbox off the block and see if it will rotate then. Since that's something that has changed since it last ran.

Dunno, but if the trans/clutch install is botched, then this would explain things.
