Actually, the lakester didn't have the full race turbo motor. It had a very mild motor that was still using the stock Eaton supercharger that came on the Cobalt SS and Saturn Ion Redline cars. It only made a little over 300 hp so they fact that they did actually eclipse 200 mph (it had a best one way run of 203 mph) says a lot. So the little 122 ci four banger wasn't much of a turd and there aren't too many cars that can go 200 mph with only 300 hp. Probably had something to do with aero. I think it's really really bitchin' that GM and So-Cal teamed up and I love the fact that they used the four banger Ecotecs. Too cool.
