Leaked documents seem to confirm earlier hunches of a power bump

Last month, we reported on a VIN filing dug up by Road & Track that showed that the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata's 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G engine would get a power bump, from 155 to 181 net horsepower.

Now we have what appears to be a leaked document from Mazda Canada showing exactly where that extra power comes from.
