Might just be better to buy a new 2L engine and get it fitted.

I went through something similar over a year ago with my 166. Burnt exhaust valve so quite a bit of top end work. If I was doing it again I might have bought another one and used original as a donor car (which I ended buying anyway). Just do the maths I'd say. If there's a nice one to replace it and you have any space to keep spare alloys etc. You could sell the rest if you need to...
