What a sunday. Took my engine apart. fault on cyl 3. exessive oil burning, no compression etc.

After removing the cylinder head this is what i saw.
Automotive tire Tread Motor vehicle Automotive lighting Rim

Piston 3 damaged, some 2.5cm part broke of the edge of the piston. Unfortunaly this part seems to have been inside the cylinder for quite a while before getting beat up to dust. Exessive damage on top of the cylinder top corner. Cylinder head also got kicked, but not as bad as the top of the cylinder. The rest of the cylinders look rally fine. Engine has run 160.000Km

Some way to fix this? new nikasil?
Or do i have to take this engine to R.I.P.

Bought the car with an defect engine. thought it was a piston ring or valve stem seal.
