I don't want to give you any false information, because I'm not too sure on this one. Flex Fuel may be difference between the two. Hopefully someone else can either verify or correct me.

Actually 2008 was first year for the power increase. The H.O. 4.7 was used in the Dakota's and I believe in certain Durango's, not 100% sure about the Durango's though.

H.O. 4.7 had a few more HP due to the different cam used. The 2008 4.7 has quite a few things done to the heads, cam, exhaust manifolds, and a different intake manifold than previous versions.

I believe older 4.7 was rated at 235hp, newer version is 310hp.

That us correct. The 2007 and older 4.7L is 235hp and the 2008 and up is 310hp. Shouldn't take to much modding to make an 08+ 4.7L comparable to the Hemi from a HP perspective. :P
