steady increase in power
it looks like the 3.6 DI has had a steady increase in marketed power since 2008. is this real? and if so is it just from tuning the chip or is there something ells that was done.

Re: steady increase in power
there was internal parts that were changed, or removed or added. like for 2012 they made the jump from 303-318hp, and they claimed that mainly due to the lighter, composite intake manifold instead of the lighter aluminum. and then i believe by making the power steering pump electric instead of driven by the engine they were able to free up a few more ponies. And im sure that they adjusted the computer accordingly to take advantage of the internal component changes
