I mean, anytime I hear "it needs a new engine" I'd like to get a 2nd opinion. That said it's not exactly a rocket science caliber test to see if you can manually turn the engine over by putting a breaker bar on the pulley. If you can't turn the engine over manually the chances that it's not a catastrophic failure are pretty slim. I'd ask the mechanic to show that to you (since it takes almost no time at all) and if it indeed won't turn over it's toast. No way I'd pay $9k to have it done at a dealer.
