I really haven't needed a vehicle to be a turbo, one vehicle get 1.68 HP per cubic inch, another gets 1.56 HP per 100 cu. in. displacement.

Most of those run regular or medium grade fuel, have 10.5 compression average, that was a problem years ago on older designs for daily use. I can remember owning an older vehicle which had 370 Hp.@ 10.7:1 compression and it always needed high grade fuel back in the mid "60's"

Better technology design has permitted most cars to reach much higher performance levels with smaller engines because of higher RPM levels and reduced valve drivetrain, better engine breathing....(more precise)ECM control tuning as one drives.

The modern ICE has become a better power Robot.... Turbo-s boost that!

One of them does, but can't say as it seems to make a huge difference.
