From my past experience, these slight power gains were often had from tweaked intake and exhaust manifolds. Of course with FI (forced induction) vehicles, all it takes is a little programming and or an increase in boost.
I would think it's the latter since it is very economical to do from the factory. But it would be interesting to get the details. Maybe it's similar to the 335 BMW performance upgrades from the dealer.
