It doesn't matter. It's newer and will have less wear and tear and more time left on the warranty.
Why wouldn't you get the '09?

The only obvious answer then would be money. That being the case, get the one you can afford.

Well there very nice but they understeer alot the
AWD is FWD bias with open diffs
It's really heavy
There's no warranty
The transmission tends to very weak
There's not a lot a people that deal with them for parts
They tend to overheat
The turbo is shitty
It's kinda slow past 125mph.
I drove it for about aweek

Turbos are the same size. The Westgates got larger so they didn't fail. I think the turbo brand changed. Not sure though.

Can you kill mustangs and evos? and i read up a lot about the cobb that it doesn't hold boost that you want it to see when you have bigger downpipes?

Yeah I believe the n55 first year was 09. The n55 has the twin scroll turbo setup And the n54 is a different setup and way more tuning options r available now.

However, there were minor upgrades to the 09 version of the engine. Mainly westgates.
