Yes it can be done. Porsche did it with the 3.0 turbo with a half point lower compression and .6 bar instead of .8 bar boost.

I am not an expert but I suspect if one ran a very efficient turbo and knew what they are doing and they did not run more than about .8 bar on a street car, rant good fuel, and with some tuning they might get away with it. I would be very careful with boost on a hot day.

However, most that want a turbo want power and the difference between a good intercooler and none is probably a good 50hp for the intercooler alone and about another 10% HP from the higher boost you can run. That is a big differance.

I think the guy that ownes that intercooler shown under the black deck lid was trying to sell it as he had his car up for sale.
