With slight cleaning of the ports, high compression pistions, SPS cams, and a nice 50mm full exhaust will bring your bike to life quite nicely.
That it will. Usually though, people do the 996 upgrade in their 916.

Side note; I've always been shocked that my 749R with only an exhaust, re-timed cam's and some fuel tuning, can easily keep pace with and over-take pretty much any liter Ducati I've run into. IDK if its just the way Ducati builds their base motors or what, but the 916/996 are just not very potent motors, even if you spend a great deal of time tuning...

Just keep that into perspective when your making decisions. Spend as little as possible and enjoy the bike for what it is. ;)
