WTB: 85.5 engine

I suffered every Porsche owner's worst nightmare: Timing belt failure.

So I'm looking for an 85.5 engine, hopefully in the Nor-Cal area so I can pick it up, as I don't think I can afford shipping on something as heavy as an entire block.

save some money and time, replace the head
if lower endwas good, remove your old head, check the piston tops and you will be fine

Already pulled the head, and the damage is catastrophic. I would need to replace pistons, cylinder walls, half of my valves, the head itself, and more than likely the cam. :-( not sure if the crank would have also bent, but at this point, everything seems to point at needing a new engine. I can always try and slowly and properly rebuild later, but right now I need this car out of the garage, as I am moving this summer for work and don't want to lose this amazing machine.
