Alternative N.A. Motor For Carrera?

Somes friends were discussing, over a Friday beer, what you would do with the following requirements:
- A normally aspirated 911 motor to use in a Carrera
- Mostly street use, and occasional AX/DE
- Keeps heating and A/C, although components can be moved/changed
- Runs on pump premium and doesn't attract noise tickets
- Can be swapped with the stock 3.2L for smog tests

One proposal was a stock 3.6L from a 964/993.

At the other extreme, a 3.8L on a 3.6L case with individual throttle bodies, F.I., and Motec, sort of a detuned racer.

What would you suggest?

I've had a stock 3.6 liter 964 and a modified 3.8 liter 993RS in mine. Both are umm... adequate

Heat isn't a big issue, finding a class to race in is


Motec/TWM etc. are also very nice but also very expensive. How nice can you afford?

get another 3.2, build it to a 3.4 keep the stock induction but use the plastic manifold, lighter and smoother. throw some wilder cams on it and raise the CR a bit and get a custom chip from Steve Wong. Or just try to push it to the limits with the stock engine.

On the same page as the 3.2 to 3.4, you could do a 3.5 conversion, just requiring some machining to the case to allow for the oversized skirts. Just an idea :-)

Keep it stock and buy some seat time. Then upgrade the suspension and buy more seat time. Add some safety stuff and still more seat time. YMMV
