Spi threw a rod. Where to get shortblock?

Hi guys. I just bought an 03 SOHC sedan lx with a blown motor. After tearing it down I found out the number 4 cylinder had thrown a rod and it made a big gouge in the cylinder wall so the block is unserviceable. The head is still in pretty good shape although it did take a beating on the number 4. I am looking for rebuilt shortblock or a low mileage shortblock and wonder what year model cars have blocks that will bolt up. I saw some 99 tracers and 00 escorts that had a variant of the split port injection at the local junkyard and I was wondering if a shortblock from those motors would bolt up to my heads. Thanks.

Steve
