Unhappy Abarth Punto SS engine swap/replacement

Hi all,
Son has a Abarth Punto SS and has wrecked the engine looks, like the block and the head are toast after one of the exhaust valves burnt out and debris
from it managed to bend the number 3 cylinder spark plug electrode flat against the ceramic insulator.

Judging by the bore-scope pictures this also hammered the top of the block in around the spark plug recess, which i cant see as repairable.
I have hoovered out some interesting metal fragments from all of the cylinders as well.....Which is not giving me much hope.

The cause i suspect of the overheating of the exhaust valves due to cowboy engine map he had installed , since it was installed it was cracking plugs nearly weekly ( I should have read the warning signs :-( )

So thinking that a replacement engine is the way to go.
Question here is anyone got a spare ;-) or know good place to source from.
I have been looking at Ebay but then came across a 124 engine, would this fit ?
Cheers

Look in your country for services that index used car parts from different sources. (Used Car Parts Comparison websites)
just to give an example: 1stchoice.co.uk
