if its only a burnt valve the just replace the valve.. if theres any damage to the piston then replace that, if theres any damage to a rod, replace that, if theres any damage to a bearing replace that.. why go the full hog and replace the engine ?

Pistons are fine piston rings are fine I was told it would cost the guts of 2000 euro to do and a new engine would be cheaper..
