    I have an 08 X, and I believe there weren't many changes from 05. Maybe a few minor upgrades, but the 08 is the last year the X had a "clutch type" LSD.

    09 was the "next generation" of Xs, and they had several changes from the 05-08s.

    Yep, the 05-08 are pretty much the same.

    I read somewhere the 05's actually push out more HP?
