That, and the reliability of a stock motor with modern fuel injection. All internals on my 3.6L are the way they left the Porsche factory. Reliable. Plenty of low end torque. Perfect for a daily driver.

Speed? Sure. But top speed has nothing to do with power. Top speed is limited by the gearing of your transmission. I run the stock 901 and i top out at ~130mph. With different gearing, i could go much faster than that. But so far, i have not had any reason to do so.

The only track i come close to that speed is on the main straight at Thunderhill.
