300+ HP from 3.6 V6?

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!

Re: 300+ HP from 3.6 V6?

Thanks Scott and I'm sure you're right. From the looks of it though, you're not looking for any more power since you have plenty with your SRT8 - nice!

Re: 300+ HP from 3.6 V6?

Intakes and exhausts are available for the 3.6, and my ported 3.6 TB FINALLY made it onto a vehicle. Should have some feedback later this week, i hope.

Does the 3.6 use that NG3 controller?

Re: 300+ HP from 3.6 V6?

Im pretty sure the 3.6 is 285 HP, so it should be pretty easy to get 300+ out of it with a few bolt on mods and the eventual debut of a tuner/chip for it. Like scott said they are putting this engine in everything coming off the line now so i am sure after market support is not too far away.

Re: 300+ HP from 3.6 V6?

The aftermarket is already there, the intake manifold has something to gain for sure, once demand is there ill be doing them. Just waiting for the WK2 crowd to catch up with everyone else.
