Turbo charging is about putting ten pounds of st*t in a five pound bag.
100% volumetric generally refers to complete cylinder filling at 1 atmosphere.
With a turbo 100% volumetric efficiency is not the goal. 130 % and much more can be achieved.

This is how you explain 500 Cubic inch engines making 6000 hp.

BTW: we are no longer in Orange County. The shop is now located on a hill top in Fallbrook. It's not an ocean veiw but it's still nice. Theo is not a pelican but he want's to be.
