Yes you are wrong.
Just kidding

The question posed is very simple and straight forward; would a 2600 pound 911 with a 915 and 3.6L engine be quicker than a bone stock 930 of the same (~280) HP rating.

The answer is an easy yes due to the weight, gearing and non turbo lag advantages of the 911 transplant.

I personlly disagree that transplant cars need bigger brakes and suspensions or they will be undriveable. I doubled the power level of my SC and added only larger torsion bars to fight the squat on boost. As a street car it drives and brakes just fine. It all depends on your needs.
