Cfg83, looking at the BFSC map it appears to me that the sweet spot is around 70 mph/2500 rpm. Which is nearly identical to a sohc, peak torque for me is 2400rpms, 114lb ft. I've read in the past that that the dohc makes within 3lb of the sohc until after 3500 rpm.
2002 Saturn SL
sohc + 5spd = 50mpg
