You might come out ahead by using a junkyard engine. Parts like that normally come with some sort of warrantee, so you have some security in knowing if the engine is good. I would not use this as a first choice, but depending on the cost of fixing your engine, you might come out ahead.

Did you get an estimate with the diagnosis?? The problem could be a warped head, but the block could also have problems, and there is always the possiblility of cracks when it comes apart. Now we are talking money. The used or rebuilt engine suggested above might be better.
