: 9-5 arc 3.0t OR 9-5 aero 2.3t

i want to spend several thousands dollars instantly to make my SAAB a perfromance monster, so i have been considering purchasing the 3.0t and emmediately upgrading the LP Turbo to a much larger high performance one. the aero already comes with a considerable turbo, but the 4 cylinders put on certain restrictions... would it be possible, feasable, and more efficient to purchase the 3.0t arc?

The V6 is not capable of any serious tuning..
The 4 cylinder is intitially 50bhp ahead!
Then in excess of 300bhp is pretty easy and cost effective...

If you want an all out performance machine its the 2.3 4 cylinder Aero you will be needing!
