Turbo the SC 3.0 or Source a 3.3L???

Guys,
I have been going back and forth on this daily and need some advice on which route to take in order to finally have a turbocharged 911.

So the question is do I TC the 3.0L with a 930 CIS, MK 993 header set-up and muffler, and K27 (plus all of the add ons like fuel pump, oil drain/scavange, etc)

OR

Source a 3.3L?

The one good thing about my current engine is I recently did all of the head studs and a top end (Thanks for the help M&K). I ported the heads for twin plug (that is not currently in use), and many of the components have been powder coated to my liking.

Obviously with the 3.3L I would have an engine already tubocharged and was set-up to do so. I may have found one of a reasonalbe price, but some assembly is required. Also I would probably have additional expense with headers, turbo, but this could be done down the road.

Thanks for the advice! Cheers.
