Yikes, that is scary, I have driven through my share of standing water here in Florida. I know my Wife will push it driving through deep water more than I would.
I would definitely try the insurance route, a colleague once totaled his company car by driving through water. It was covered as flood damage, but it all depends on the carrier.
I don't know of any engine sources, you should see what your dealer could find. I would also contact some independent facilities to see if they have a source, the dealer may not want to deal with an engine from an outside company, your best bet may be to have the car moved to an indie.
