In the earliest days of selling turbocharging it was accepted that an engine can make similar power IF reved high. However, the cost goes up exponentially and reliability down in like fashion because the forces of high reving are much higher than those of supercharging(turbos include). This is the beauty of supercharging.

Kenik has a program to do both. With that he will make high power but also have the risks and cost. My scenario does not include pushing the RPMs past stock limits or include overboring the motor for its marginal HP contribution, therefore the HP gains will be less. They will however allow use of Porsche components that are readily available and make for a high power density lighter weight engine and trans combination.
