Broken spark plug

Well over the weekend the notorious loose spark plug problem with these s2k's caught up with me. One of them broke fell into the engine and scarred my cylinder wall so bad I have only 50% compression in one of my cylinders. Car runs alright buy doesn't idle hardly at all. Their tellin me the only thing I can do is a rebuild or a new engine. Any body out there with any knowledge of this kinda thing?

That would be so much work you might as well replace the whole block. Lot's of labor though. I tried buying a salvage engine from lkq online a while back. After sending me four rejects I got a refund and ended up rebuilding what I had. All of your options are expensive unfortunately.

I've seen 'em send some junk, but not 4 times in a row...
