Add in a 915 and a 400 pound advantage for the 3.6 and it is no contest. The turbo may pick the 3.6 back up at the end of the quarter mile.

Okay, if you count the 930 as stock and do anything you want to the 911, than the 911 clearly could be faster. And if you like a light weight NA engine than go for it. But....

A 911 conversion is not stock.

A stock 911 from the same era as a 930 only weighs about 100 pounds less. Mainly it is engine weight and a couple accessories.

A stock 3.6 Carrera weighs a lot more than a 930, I believe.

A stock 930 from pre-89 is faster than a stock 911 from pre-89 and also faster than a stock 3.6 carrera from the 90's.

At the end of the day, any 930 conversion is likely to be faster than a 911 conversion, just like any stock 930 is faster than a stock 911.

In theory, a highly modified 911 can easily be faster than a stock 930. But don't count on a 911 conversion being faster than the typically modified 930s you run into.

Just maintaining the pecking order.....
