I would certainly turn the engine over by hand first, line up the timing marks and make sure that the timing belt slipped, before doing all this work and having it happen again. It doesn't make much sense that just one piston would have damage from a mis-timed engine.

Your sure its piston damage? Either way the head needs to come off if it is damaged.
