Engine Questions

So I'm looking at ads for Californian 34's and I have come up with some questions about engines. Most of the LRCs for sale seem to have either Cat 3208s or Perkins 6-354s. So with respect to those two, here's what I have so far:

-- Turbo vs NA?
-- Cruising speed? Fuel consumption?
-- Parts availability?
-- Weak points? Things to watch for? Potential gotchas?
-- Things to look for when shopping?
-- Ease of maintenance access?

Thoughts/opinions/anecdotes gratefully accepted!
