Default Outlook 3.6 vs. Aura 3.6 - why does the Outlook have more HP?

I was looking through some info today and saw that the 3.6L Outlook is rated at 275HP and the 3.6L Aura is rated at 252 HP - why is that? Is it an ECM thing? Exhaust? Intake? Cams? I don't think the Outlook is direct inject...

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Outlook 3.6 vs. Aura 3.6 - why does the Outlook have more HP?

From what I remember, the larger underhood space in the Outlook allowed a more efficient intake manifold. Possibly the exhaust system was a larger diameter pipe increasing efficiency...

I am certain the early Outlook also had 2 horsepower ratings, the stronger engine had a dual exhaust?
