: late-model 9-5 aero wagons

7th April 2004, 09:53 PM
I'm looking to purchase a late-model (> 2000) aero wagon. Does anyone know if the increase in power from 230 to 250 HP (in 2002) was due entirely to a change in the ECU? Or, was the engine block beefed up? Was there a change in the turbocharger itself?
The reason I ask is that somewhere down the line I'll probably want to up the HP/torque on the car. If there are changes to the engine itself, I'd want to start with the beefier (and better) 2002.

Thanks for any help,

An ECU upgrade both the 230 & 250Hp models up to the same power levels.
