I think a single plug 3.4 makes a lot of since as a rebuild/upgrade when starting with a 3.2 Carrera motor. The 3.5 also makes a lot of if you are going to go from the bearings out on the rebuild. There was a nice set of 3.5 P&Cs on the for sale board about a week ago at a price that would have offset the cost of the extra case and head machine work incurred when doing a 3.5.

None of this stuff is cheap. If you can build a 3.5 for the same price as a 3.4, or even a stock 3.2, then you might as well do it. Im looking into building a hi-rev sub 3.0 motor and Im adding up $$$ figures that are not much different from a 3.4 or 3.5 build. And no matter how much whizbang stuff I add to my hypothetical buildsheet, Im not coming up with anything that is going to outperform a stock 964 swap for the same kind of money.
