I'm currently looking for a replacement head at junkers for my 03 with the 1.6l (yah, timing belt). What years are interchangeable for this engine? I get the impression it's the Alpha II engine and that might be 2003-2009, but there also seems to be a Mazda engine model in there somewhere with the same displacement.

Any way to easily tell from markings or VIN?

Also, any pointers regarding the rebuild on this? The pistons were slightly holed in the pile-up, but the cylinder walls look good and I dont' think it bent anything in the lower end. I'm going to drop the pan and try an inframe piston replacement, and then rebuild the head or put on a straight swap from a working write-off.
