It sounds like you've already given up on keeping it original. 930's with the original engine aren't that rare so that's not a big selling point.

If it's a really low mile, non-accident, always garaged car in a dry region then it may be worth keeping it stock. If you want to get back what you paid for it you may want to keep it stock since modified cars tend to sell for less unless it's heavily modified then it may sell for more than a stock car but no where near what it costs to make it heavily modified.

I'm not a fan of 100mm pistons because the 98mm ones seem pretty big already, but that's just an opinion.

As for weight, I think 2500 is a bit optimistic. My '79 weighs a bit over 2700 without A/C, with Recaro PP seats, FG bumpers, and a lighter engine package.
