Dead Cylinder, engine swap?

So I have a dead cylinder on my 93 f22b engine, changed the plugs, wires and caps, still nothing, good compression all around (185), mechanic said its most likely the exhaust valve(car is put putting pretty bad, idling high etc etc ) and that for the same amount of labour, he could do an engine swap, I know a wrecker, so I could get the engine for 200$ and it would be all inspected with a new water pump, new timing belt etc etc. which is all stuff im going to need in the next 20,xxxkm

Anyways, what I was wondering is if I do go with the swap, what can I put in there that will be just a straight swap? The f22b engine seems to be extremely hard to find in Canada, I dont want to downgrade to a f22A1, but it seems that the H23A1 and the f22b are pretty similar, but is it a straight swap? and what else could I possibly put into my lude?
