Subject: Re: Decisions, decisions...96 Aero, 98 CSE


At least for the eurpean market, these two models do not have the same engines. Or to be exact, the same turbos. The CSE has a garret T25M while the aero uses a Mitsubishi TD04HL-15t. If you are thinking of tuning your car above 240-250hk, then the Mitsu turbo is a better choise.... /Mathias JTMav wrote: > On Sun, 09 Apr 2000 23:55:44 GMT, diamondlilnopsamnet wrote: > The 98 does not have the same suspension as the Aero nor does it have > the Aero seats, wheels or brakes.
