“The 304 horsepower in the 2010 Camaro was actually a conservative rating on our end,” said Tom Sutter, GM V-6 chief engineer. “But we knew already that this award-winning engine produced at least the amount of power we stated, but now we’ve gone the extra step in certifying the engine for this application and have verified an additional 8 horsepower.”

So, the 2010 V6 Camaro actually has 312 HP? That's what it sounds like from GM's chief V-6 engineer. That's pretty cool.

What I understand from his explanation posted above is that GM finally (for the 2011 model year) SAE certified the V-6 Camaro's HP to be higher than their original conservative rating used for the 2010 model year.

Am I understanding this correctly? If so, the V-6 Camaro, with exhaust, intake, headers, and a tune really has some good usable power. That's awesome.
