1996 770IL - Engine Problem

I just got issues with smog check. The report came up with problems with piston 5 and 8. It has only 155k miles, kept it in fairly well maintained condition. Not sure whether I should let it go or spend $ on fixing it. The body and interior is maintained and in good shape, except a few things here and there.
1) What would it cost me to fix or get a new engine including installation
2) What would be a good place - I am in the San Francisco bay area, CA
3) Would it be worth to spend these $s
4) What would be a reasonable judgement in this case - salvage or fix it?
