Well......not a perfect substitute, but you got what I meant.

You can reduce the additional heat a little by using a compressor sized for the higher PR needed at higher altitude, rather than a compressor sized for sea level applications. Not a perfect solution, but better than what the NA guys have to work with.

Look up 'Brent930'. He's not as active on the forums as he used to be, but was a pioneer in pushing the limits of CIS. He was in Ft. Collins and had a CIS car with around 450 RWHP.
