Default timing belt warped valves

I am the proud owner of a 1997 Chrysler sebring convertible JX. I have gotton her up to 181,000 miles. 2.5L v6. Cherry red with black top and interior. She still purrs like a kitten and drives perfect.

Ok so my timing belt went out. This caused some warped valves. I am fixing her regardless of the cost. I am wondering if it would be more feasable to replace the broken parts, or get a new engine dropped in.

I kinda want to see how high a miles I can get her to last through. She is in flawless interior and exterior condition. I bought her from an older couple who used her to travel the country on vacations, garage kept her whole life. So what would you all think I should do?
