But then obviously the fuel economy takes the hit.
The improvements they did to the SPT were to allow it to be played with without overheating like the HTCVT. Not saying it won't overheat; but, if it does, your doing something. Like seriously something.

People keep forgetting these are not 0-60 drag race cars.

And no, that's not saying it would beat either of those cars around a track. I'd wager it would beat a LXT you're wanting the power from, however.
