My past few cars were Audi's and VDubs (all turbos) and the first thing I always did when I drove them off the lot was had them modified: chipped the engines, cold air intake, exhaust, etc. - kept all else the same, but gave the car an extra ~100 HP. I justified these upgrades as I live in an area where I'm often in mile-high country - a place where engines gasp for air.
I've now gone back to SUV territory and I'm extremely pleased with my 2011 V6 JGC (wanted the six for everyday driving), but am wondering if anyone has had experience in adding power to it. Since it's an all aluminum engine, not sure I can do much to push the 300+ HP range. Not wanting to make it a sports car, but give it a little edge when climbing steep grades, etc. Thoughts or experiences?
Thanks in advance for your posts - much appreciated!
