Have you removed the spark plugs and then cranked the engine to remove the water from the top of the pistons?
Your intake manifold will also have water in it.

I would not run that motor w/o pulling the head to see if a rod is bent, I would question the gasket anyway. What u have now is fixable, ride it and throw a rod and your done....ask me how I know......btw, sbt sucks donkey marbles. Options are, fix yourself, send engine to Nils, stickem, JD1, Shibby, 9sec, or u can go to the dealer (but get a loan 1st). They way to tell w/ head off is to make sure all 3 pistons go ALL the way to tdc, and they must not be rotated in any way from the others. I am sure the people I mentioned have the parts and brains to get u going, so find out who is closest.

Remove your intake manifold and dump any water out of it.
Remove all plugs and crank engine until no more water comes out.
Do a compression test. A low reading on one cylinder could mean a bent rod and/or blown head gasket.
If all cylinders read close to the same reinstall plugs and fire it up.
If you are unfortunate enough to have a low reading on one of the cylinders yank the head off
