Really hot tuning tips and advice.
Available in standard form with power of upto 257bhp (depending on the year), so this goes to show the tuning potential of the 6. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 282.7bhp to 436.9bhp which seems almost too good to be true but is possible if you have deep pockets.
To go over the 100bhp per 1000cc limit you would need to be running a pretty serious forced induction setup. If you head for a maximum power figure you need to expect a lot of unreliability. See this link for more details on Engine Tuning

These give impressive power gains over standard but require a lot of effort to get working properly. If you have a turbo or supercharger get the intercooler uprated for even more power.
