Hi

This is my first time on the 9000 forum, I am currently running a stage 1 9-5.
I have owned a 9000cse previously.
I am considering buying a 9000 a some point in the not to distant future, question is which one is a best base to start with for some serious power. I like the old carlsons but are the aeros alot better.
How does the bhp/£ differ from the 9-5 in terms of software upgrades and parts etc?

9000's tend to be cheaper to tune the trionic 5 is simpler and the engine is more robust
the 9-5 should not be taken much past 300 hp without major changes internally

the B234 (9000) is good for 400 + with standard internals

the best value is a stage 1 with a 3 " exhaust + downpipe and a performance air filter
this should see you knocking on 300 hp if you start with an aero...
