Goku's power level, according to Vegeta's scouter.

In the manga, however, Goku's power level was over 8000, and Vegeta was less enthusiastic about it, saying "It's over...8000." What compelled them to change it for the anime, no one knows, but it was a smart move overall.
"Vegeta! What does the scouter say about his power level?!"

"It's over NINE THOUSAAAAAAND!!!"

"What nine thousand??"

9000
9 thousand

Over 9000 is a term used to express a great amount of skill, strength, speed, etc. The term originated from the anime show Dragonball Z when Nappa asks Vegeta what his scouter ( a device used in Dragonball to measure the power level, or battle strength, of someone) said about Goku's power level. Vegeta's scouter was designed to pick up a power level up to 9000 whereas Goku's power level was "over 9000" which was what he told Nappa.
*Goku shows up*
Nappa: Vegeta, what does the scouter say about his power level?
Vegeta: It's over 9000!!!!!
*Vegeta removes and crushes scouter*
Nappa: What, 9000?! There's no way that can be right!
