We know enough about FI in the LFX to know it is capable of those numbers without a doubt. But I do agree, that with the NA V6 already making 323, 380 doesn't sound like much for a TTV6....just have to remember there is A LOT more untapped potential there (and a very strong flat TQ curve!)
As DGthe3 mentioned in response to an earlier post of mine, the 380 hp TT3.6 is likely tuned more for FE than performance. Although I would hope to see a high output version for select applications (e.g. ATS-V, Alpha Buick Grand National [if they make one], etc.)
