First off, I don't think you can put a 66mm crank in an SC motor unless you have the 962 crankshaft $$$$$$$$ with the 9-bolt flywheel end.

FOR THE AMOUNT OF MONEY, I would build this:
3.0-3.2 case
3.0 SC 9-bolt crank
USED but good high-cr JE/RSR/whatever pistons
3.2 cylinders, used
standard-port 3.2 heads (40/38--pretty big already)
Porsche factory 3.0 RSR 'Sprint' camshafts (4bearing)
single plug
Webers (46IDA)
I would think such an engine would a) be fine on the street, better than a 98x66 anyway, b) probably worth ~285 hp, c) it screams to 8k, and d) it actually has a spec. when you talk about it, ie. "I have a 3.0 RSR engine" and everyone knows what RSR means....
another option if you have money is to substitute in 98s, they're just more expensive but you'll have a short-stroke 3.2. MFI is another cool thing that is expensive.
