A normally aspirated engine will lose about 3% of its horsepower for every 1000 ft of elevation. At that altitude you are already down nearly 20% in power, whereas the turbo charged engine doesn't suffer from that issue. Additionally, there is nearly nothing that can be done to the 328 engine to improve it's performance, and with what it costs to make those improvements you could pretty much just buy the 335. Lowering your car and putting on a louder exhaust will make it faster on either model.
learn it, know it, live it
