engine rebuild

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 1982; Body Type: Coupe;

I just came across broken head studs during a valve adjustment and i had a few questions concerning an engine rebuild. Considering i am on a student budget (possibly $2000-$3000) , would i get by with just a top end rebuild or is it necessary to do the case as well. if it is possible to do just the top end would it be wise to put in the parts i had intended to eventually put in (je pistons, salvaged 2.7 s cams, and a salvaged 3.2 carrera intake manifold, together priced about 1700.) doing all the work (except machining) myself is this possible? any other thoughts, opinions, or advice on low budget rebuilds would be appreciated.
