I'm no expert but, the basics are that the 930 intake is designed for torque and the 3.2 intake is designed more for horsepower. Some obvious differences is the 3.2 Carrera intake has a significantly larger plenum area. The Carrera intake does appear to have longer runners but, hopefully someone that knows for sure can chime in to verify this. For forced induction applications, larger plenums are more desirable for creating horsepower as they are less of an intake airflow restriction. With the Carrera intake you will probably see a bit less peak mid range torque, and you will be able to maintain torque/hp higher in the rpm without quite as much of a drop off on the top-end. For forced induction, IMO it's worth it.
