3.6 Horsepower

After 10 years of BMW X5's, I just got a '14 Overland. I apologise if this question has been answered, but this my first day on the forum. Why the horsepower difference from 305 to 290 for the GC? Thanks.

I would imagine most of it is in the intake manifold and/or intake breather tube, maybe also the exhaust. The intake is probably designed more for protection from the elements vs maximum gains, the exhaust is probably a little more restrictive because of routing or to make it quieter. The intake and breather may also be more restrictive basically because thats how they decided to make it fit under the hood, or to reduce noise too.
