ok, first of all, yeah you do have a blown engine, the best and cheapest way to fix it is to toss the motor and find a low milage takeout engine on ebay or similar...that can be about $700, you might pay someone $1000 to drop in it...problem solved, otherwise, no, it's not worth it to do the repair, you could sell the car as is, add $5100 and have another car.
I'm not bashing, but the V8 cars are more reliable...I've never had any repair on my Cobra that was more than about $700
