Default Honda 3 Cylinder Speed Record

Wow! 261+ mph with a 660cc Turbo.
Honda S Dream Goes Nearly 262 MPH on Three-Cylinder Power - Motor Trend

So, shouldn't a turbo'd 995cc with a good IMA be able to do like 300mph?

I have a turbo, 995cc, and a good IMA. Mine will only do 298mph. I guess I need a tune-up.
