Your question is very vague. There isn't a best year. Each has it's advantages and disadvantages. Most horsepower out of the box is very different than most horsepower you can produce out of a built engine. Motor wise, a lot of hardcore engine builders will opt for some of the older Legacy semi or fully closed deck engines. Those can be hard to come by now-a-days. You're better off telling us what your goal in the end is. And handling is a whole other animal.

Plus price point!

Biggest turbo/power comes from the 09+ but do you have or want to spend 20k+?

Buddy just found one here in KS for around 13.5K. Unmolested, older gentleman owned, wanted something newer. If you are uber patient about it you can find it. But its not always easy.
