Question Header?

when my car is idling it idles real low like it wants to die. I took it to a Ford Dealership and they were saying it was cheaper for me to buy a used engine and install it. they wanted to put a brand new header on it. ($2100)

My car is not leaking ANY fluid.
There is no antifreeze coming through the tailpipe
There is no "milky" oil.
Also pressure tested it myself it held fine
It also drives fine at 80mph
The only problem is idling

I had autozone test the engine light and they said misfire on cylinder 4
It does need a tune up.

My plan:
Replace head gasket, plugs, wires, & head bolts
Will I have to get it timed after I do the head gasket?
