Saturn beating a Camaro

those ecotecs hold a lot of speed records...

the best ecotec's 1/4 mile time is a lot less then the best 4th gen time...

hell GM even published a book how to get them up to 500hp under warranty, but to top that, the best ecotecs out there have 2000+ hp...

I'm at work and can't access the video, but if it was an S-Series, then it doesn't have an ecotec unless someone did a major swap. There were 2 versions of the 1.9L Saturn engine (SOHC and DOHC) in the S-Series, and the DOHC version has been built to, I believe, over 400 hp. That's a lot of power in a 2400 lb car.

That guy is a member of turbosaturns.net. His name is Ian, and he's n excellent source of knowledge on those forums. His car is a 95 or 94 I can't remember, but it does have a boosted 1.9L DOHC engine. He made a log-style manifold for it. Cannot remember all the specs, but he's put alot of time, money, swearing and tears into that car, and the result is a truly fabulous sleeper. Last I heard he's into over 300 hp to the wheels with that car, and yes, it does only weigh 2400ish lbs.
