That is *crazy*...pretty much all VAXen are a fair bit faster than
pretty much all Sun3s. Weird.

...real machines, too. There are always a bunch of them on eBay, and
the older/slower ones are cheap.
For a simulator, though, look at SIMH
(http://simh.trailing-edge.com/). This is a very good emulator for
VAX, PDP11, and PDP8. DG Nova, and many other machines. To give you an
idea of its capabilities, I've installed and run NetBSD/vax using the
SIMH VAX simulator with great success.
