Default What motor options do I have vintage B

Hi I have a 2006 pt cruiser 8th in vintage B
Picked it up with a bad head gasket when I pulled the head all 4 cylinders filled with coolant and rust
Do I replace head gasket and call it good or replace the motor
Motors with 8th in vin are $700 +
But looking at 2005 stratus vin X are $400 +
What's the best motor option

I'm not sure if I'm right about this...but I believe the crankshafts are different, this also means the crankshaft sensor is also. I'm not sure if any other sensors are different.

If you're looking at a salvage yard for the engine, just ask them if they have a Hollanders Exchange manual. That should tell you which engines can be swapped.
