I've done a 2.4T rebuild into a 2.4E+ (higher compression) for about 5K. I haven't ever driven anything other than T's and E's so to me an E feels like a super T.. more torque and horsepower, just at a slightly higher range and a nice wide torqueband. My trick was to find a 2.2E motor and grab the pistons, heads, and cams out of it.

I'm also running headers, and I use a screw in place of the thermostat. Can't say it's the best solution, it can be hard to start when the motor is cold. This part is a work in progress

Also do a seatch for 2.4T and you'll find loads of information on what to do with a motor like that.
