g96nt Your engine choices are limited, but 2nd hand suply should be plentiful if you're in europe.
Both the b205 and b235 are 2000-02 9-3 or 1997-2009 9-5

oliversexpedition Easiest path is find another B205E and put it in. If you have access to a Tech-II or someone who can tune your car, B235E, TD04-15 and intercooler system, and ECU upgrade might be possible, depends on how much work you want to do.

Tboy Those two engines are not interchangeable. Check your years again friend. There were no 9-5's in 1995, started making them in 1999.

You can use an engine from a 9-3, but only up to 2002 (or 2003 convertible). Those interchange with the 9-5 but as a 2.0 liter instead of the 9-5's 2.3 liter.

If you get a good deal on a 2.0 liter motor go for it. It will drive nearly the same at stock power levels.

Jameson Its not worth the effort. 9-5 B235 engines are so common. The 9-3 B207 has less displacement to work with and gives you more challenges than dropping in another B235. So getting less with more work makes little sense to me.
