Any kind of performance you want. Are you trying to make a pro stock engine or what? If you are I wouldn't dump the money into a 10hp. Id go with a 14hp or a 16hp kohler and go from there.

This is assuming your using a Kohler

offset bore it, deck the block change to a better head and shave it, get a cam for it, do a good valve job on it, if rules allow it take the #26 carb and swap it for a #28 and put a steel flywheel on it,  You could port the intake slightly but unless your going to crank the rpms that won't do much

Do an online search for Killer Kohler and you should come up with a series of articles on building up a K series engine and a bunch of links as well.

His website is Kirk engines . com. He is a great guy to deal with. He has a nice tutorial on building up a k241 and also a k301. Nice pics to view. It pretty much walks you through the whole build process.I just got done building up a k301 from his directions. Cant wait to get it in a tractor and see how it performs. P.S. get your check book out.
