Best bet would to whip head off and see what damage done and assess from there whether it's worth repairing or not depending also on year , general condition of car etc .

most times just remove the head get it repaired and new chain giudes and gears.Also check the oil pump drive shaft they can wear a bit.to check that just grab the gear on it and see if there is any side ways movement.
There is no mods made to the head for gas on these
