Howdy,

Don't need 8 grand to win if that's your ultimate objective. Here's the PWR 3.4 TT GT 1 winning PCA 's Oktoberfest . You'll note on the heads up it hard cuts at 7,500rpm. By limiting rev's to 7.5 and focusing on flexible usable power below that it can compete at a much lower $/hour at this level than it's competition (GTA-C) at 60 hours between builds, the largest parts replaced being the exhaust valves.

Only the 2.1tt out of the 2.6TT, 3.0TT and the 3.4TT is rev'd over 8 grand in competition.

A mod'd 3.4 Turbo in a 911/930 is likely to land you in GT 1 in PCA if you build anything adequate to convey that power (safely) to the track. Sadly, there're are less and less of our beloved old machines being campaigned, thus, your run groups will be predominantly the latest no-lift shift, traction c, abs equiped and sorted factory machinery up to 4 litres and rev'g over 9K. The key is handling/driveability.
