I used to own a 996 which I sold last summer. It was a 99. Can't find any 996 or 998 locally and the 916 that is locally has some mods and has been dumped so im passing on it. Theres a 748S 2001 all stock original owner no race or abuse with 8k. What would be the big difference in power etc from my old 996?

Basically, 25% less displacement gives you 25% less horsepower which peaks at 11,000 rpm, instead of 8,500 rpm for the 996. So part of the fun is wringing its neck to stay on the torque curve.
