Hey Alan,

A bit confused, are you pondering NA or Turbo? Comparing the build cost of one versus the other?

Well, heres my attempt at an answer for you.

There is not a factory 3.2 to my knowledge but when I built my new engine based on my 1977 3 litre 930, I ended up making it a 3.2 with fully finned Mahle P's and C's. I am going to be dyno tuning here soon with my new EFI setup and custom intake manifold. I am hoping to make 525 RWHP with my motor.

As for making the kind of NA hp you speak of I would suspect it is going to take strong bolts for a higher reving motor, headwork, cams, ITB's, twin plug ignition, and the usual headers etc...

My pick for an NA motor that makes nice power close to stock and is very solid would be a 3.6 from a 964 car. Just my .02

I can give you my mod list if interested.

Hope this somehow helps?
