916 Spider engine upgrade

Hello, there is a 1997 916 spider for sale in my neighbourhood (if you count being about 400 km away as in the neighbourhood) with the 3 litre 12 valve engine. Clearly imported to Canada from Europe.
Is it possible to graft on a 24 valve head on to it and, if so, how much work is it? I suppose the ECU would also need to be replaced, along with time belts etc.
There a few of the 24 value engines kicking around from 164 LS that have rusted out.

I haven't looked into it, but there must be some shop times or costs on line somewhere.
No, I haven't bought the 916, I got distracted and then it was sold.
