2.0 2.3 swap on my st

well i just blew a valve today right after fixing another problem(unrelated) and im pretty sure im gunna need another engine. i took tha top off, timing belt looked fine, could be messed up on tha bottom . cams and every thing looked good till i pulled tha plugs and one of them was smashed to tha side ,no gap, desroyed! i looked down tha hole and there looked to be A GOOD amount of damage to tha valve so im guessing probly head and piston damage. im new to this never, had this happen,(and i never race it !really to many tickets) there is only 43,000miles on it! so my question is can i put in a 2.0 duretec instead of 2.3? tha reason being i can find alot of 2.0 engines cheap and very few 2.3 engines. im very low on money and just tryin to get it to drive . plus will my cossie parts fit :intake manifold, t.b , cold air intake ,421 headers . please whats tha scoop
