Smile What fun could be done with a 2.4T?

Hi!
I have restored and upgraded my 9112.4T Targa(a wreck at first) to 964 widebody without rear wing. Basalt black with Cup1, all used original parts. Budget wise I am considering a restored 3.0SC engine. But before buying such an engine I wonder what fun could be done with the 2.4T dogengine (Zenith carbs). Is this a reasonable engine to have as a starting point for something fun. Let's assume I am prepared to spend $2-2500.

What would you do? Sell it for$1500 (in Sweden) and buy a better SC engine or upgrade the one I have??

Everything else has been done
Baremetal body restoration
965 used bumbers,sills original not GF
New Targa rubber parts
New Carrera 84 brakes
New brakelines + blasted, zinced and cromated plus powercoated suspension
Bushings
Turbo tierods + bumpsteer washers
New bearings + bushings
New carpets + seats + 930S steeringwheel
New windows
Tires and rims
Lights

Thankful for engine input

/Henrik

You can get some more performance with exhaust, camshafts and a low restriction air filter. Beyond that it's fast getting expensive (piston. cylinders...). A good 2.4 engine should be enough to have some fun.
