Agree on the comment regarding street driven cars. I would love to know how many track their cars with this formula and never have a problem. Geez if I had 360 Hp i could not cope with just street driving
it is not all that uncommon. Low compression + turbocharging is an "old" approach. More and more people have been moving to slightly higher compression on turbo applications because making the engine more efficient (more power) in N/A form is the best way. As in all cases, TUNING is the key.
