look at my sig, I still have minor KR with the 3.2

you will probably get about 1-2 psi more with the 3.2 than the 3.4

porting a SC makes it more efficient by making it able to handle more air, and do it cooler.

You'll probably want to start off with a 3.5mps and go smaller once you have more extensive mods. Even at that, with a 3.5, you'll want to have a CAI, preferably a FWI, as well as a 180* t-stat.
Before you go smaller, it would be best to get get a high-flow cat, and a PCM.You can run a 3.4 without either, but you will most likely get a lot of KR.
