Difference between the 2006 & 2012 HEMI C

Basically, if the HEMI motor in the 2006-2010 C are the same as the motors in the 2011 models, why is there a 26HP difference?

Simple Question, but I would like to know

Does you car have Ka-chunka-chunk

The horsepower went up cause now the 5.7L Hemi uses VCT(Variable Cam Timing), this started in 2009. Which is when they bumped the horsepower to all LX's. It also has to do with the PCM being remapped also.

Better polishing on the intake/exhaust ports, too, as I recall.
