Sounds like a candidate for a engine swap. Just find a used motor and put it in(the same or similar motor). I think that would more cost effective than trying to rebuild the current motor. That is if the rest of the car is good. Do not forget to find out why it overheated in the first place. Frequently that is a sign of poor maintenance. Hope that is not the case and you get it back on the road soon.
