I recently blew my head gasket. Replace my engine with a old engine with a new used one but the head gasket was blown on that too. Do I replace the gasket, or the engine

If it were me, I'd replace the car! But if you want to keep it, just do the head gasket. Have the head checked for warpage and pressure tested as well. HTH. -Jim
