Engine Failure Advice Needed


Model: 996, Year:2000, Mileage:75k, Type of use:Street use only
My 2000 996 3.4L failed recently at 75k when I started it in the driveway. Needless to say I am not pleased. the car was well taken care of and tracked just 3 or 4 days. The same old story I have read on several lists about this 3.4L. I'm looking for any creative ways to replace, repair etc the engine. I can't buy a 17-20k engine from Porsche. I'm local to the PCA Potomac region (VA,DC,MD). From what I have read the main option chosen by people in my position is to get a rebuild engine. I have heard of a 4.0L conversion and 3.7L rebuild/conversion which is just out of the ballpark for me in cost. Any insight is appreciated.
