Yep, huge difference if talking manuals in both. I have owned just about every 911 model including an 88 3.2 and a 90 3.6. My 90 3.6 was built out to 3.8, had a Lenz stand alone fuel management, titanium everything, cat bypass and primary bypass and was a beast. Even before I dumped $ 25,000 into the engine, the 90 was much quicker than my 3.2. The 3.2 is not a sprinter by any means and lacks a lot in the low end and lower revs, even more so than the Elise. The Elise is a much quicker car than a 3.2 and about the same as a stock 964 3.6 manual.
