When you compare apples to apples, a stock 1990's 280HP 3.6 to a stock late 1980s 280HP 930, the N/A 3.6L has a performance edge due to the torque curve and lack of turbo lag. Now add a 400 pound wieght advantage and a 915 vs 930 4spd and the difference is huge.

Trouble is most folks have never driven a stock 930. Rare as hens teeth around here. The modern mods make turbo lag disappear and torque and HP increases are huge. Once those types of mods are done the 930 becomes a formidable contender to any taker. The 3.6L on the other hand is done. Gaining tiny amounts of power becomes a wallet emptying excersize in diminishing returns.
