If this car is unibody, its done. Once you bend the firewall you have changed the geometry of the car enough that it wont drive the same if you could fix it. The firewall movement is also a sign of other damage unseen. Cut the cage and get a new car.

The easiest thing I can suggest is take it to a body shop and get some frame machine time. Tell them your cash and they will probably cut you a deal. That kind of damage is not gunna get fixed with a porta-power.
