What damage has been done? If the pistons haven't been damaged (ie just valves bent) you could just fit another head.

He's not stripped it yet , but was thinking of just swapping it out for another complete unit

Personally I would take the head off first, nothing to lose, everything to gain. If there's no piston damage you're laughing.
