You do have to realize that we're talking air cooled 2 valve Porsche's here, and not 4 valve, high c/r watercooled honda's/supra's. The difference being that we make about 8.5 hp/lb/hr vs. they can make about 10. So, a 70# compressor can make 700hp strapped out on a Honda, but only about 595hp on a Porsche. And that's running it to it's limits where the efficiencies aren't so good. They do it at huge boost pressures on the Supra's, Honda's, Subaru's, and Evo's...

BTW, that air filter shield looks good. Might very well work, but what happens when a rock bounces up and around to the top where it's not protected?
