I started out with air cooled VW and Porsche. The engine sounds like a tractor because the exhaust leaks aren't fixed. A 92 LH 2.4 engine should idle smoothly and quietly. You can add a nice bit of power with some affordable upgrades like a better cam like an A or B cam and a tune on the ignition ecu. After that if you aren't a speed demon leave it alone and it'll serve you well for a long time.

If you are going to lower the car use lowering springs or even better use what is suggested above.
