2003 wrx wagon

Default need help with what i think is valve trouble :( rebuild, replace, or hybrid?

I bought a 2003 wrx wagon 2 months ago in phili, and drove it cross country to colorado. 2 days ago while driving to the store i hit a pretty serious pot hole, 30 seconds later the engine light came on. i drove it to the store and home, and it ran a bit rough. the next day i went to auto zone and they pulled a cy4 misfire code. i took it into the shop, and they changed the plugs, wires, and coil, but it didn't fix the problem. they now say it has a burned valve, and i will need a rebuild or new engine. the thing is it doesn't smoke.

is there anything else that could be causing this? I had the car gone over by our family's mechanic in phili for 3 hours and it all checked out fine 2 months ago. i did an oil change on it about 3 weeks ago where i added 1/2 qt too much oil, but drained it right after starting it and put back in the right amount. is there any way that the bump could have caused it to jump timing?

anyway, the shop is saying the rebuild will be 2200, while getting a rebuilt engine will be 3500. i was also thinking about doing a hybrid if i need to go this route. getting a rebuilt engine is what i am leaning tward, but the hybird setup sound like a lot of fun, but could be problematic and will cost $$$$. i don't know a ton about these cars, but i don't want to scrap it as i have wanted one for a few years and was really happy to finally get one.
