I've been asking around at the dealer if there are any physical differences between the 2.9-litre turbocharged V6 motor in the refreshed Macan Turbo and the 2020 GTS. So far, I haven't heard anything to suggest stronger or heavier duty performance parts, etc. to give the turbo its 324kW vs the 280kW in the GTS, other than a software map.

Dealer told me the only difference with the engine itself is software.

This is unlike the earlier 3.6 engines (which were actually made by Porsche rather than Audi) that had 20% more displacement versus the S/GTS engine and drove significantly differently despite the paper ratings (We own one of each).

You are the perfect person to ask what "drove significantly differently despite the paper ratings" means. You have our attention.
