What differences internally & externally do these motors have? The Aero and SE models of the 9-3 have the B205R while the the 9-5's get the B235R, is one better suited to additonal hp increases? Are the core items such as head bolt spacing/torgue,cooling system design mirroe each other?

Crankshaft,rods and pistons are different.Everything else-bore size,head bolts,gaskets and pumps etc are the same.
Also cars with B235R have bigger and stronger clutch and different turbo of course.
