Not to mention that a 911 with a "bug motor" will have a drastically reduced resale value. Chances are, you woulbe able to sell the same exact car with -no- motor for more than you could if you said it had a Type IV motor in it... really...

The advice from the others is good. If your budget is busted, Either find a used 2.4 that's in a good shape, and swap it out, selling the old one to recoup some of the expense. Or put the car back in the market. Putting a Type IV motor in there will wind up costing you considerably more than you think, and will reduce the value of the car dramatically. Unfortuantely, there's no limp-along fix for what you've described. Bugs and busses, the motors are a dime a dozen, but a 911 motor is another beast altogether....
