You are looking to do the work yourself? Are you going to rebuild it or swap it for a new or used engine? If you buy a used engine look out for bad head gaskets. If I were installing a used engine I would do the head gaskets and timing belt before installing it.

If you have the budget I would go with a rebuilt if you are planning on keeping it. I can't recommend any particular company though.
