Timing chain tensioner mangled

I bought my mini about 36 days ago for 10 thousand. With 80 thousand miles on it. I just bought a whole bunch of new parts to tune it up and just before they arrived the tensioner broke and it jumped time. It's a 2007 s. I want to go ahead and replace the engine, but I was thinking of putting the jcw in it since I'm putting a new one in it. Can anyone recommend a good site here in America for an engine that will have a warranty. And my other question is does the jcw fit right up or will it require parts and modification? I have the manual 6 speed gear box. Thanks everyone
