! 125 extra horses! that I could use at odd times if the average fuel economy wouldn't suffer a loss, and UGG to premium fuel costs. Maybe an assist to exhaust blown scavenging by flipping a switch for performance. I saw a steel drum barrel get collapsed by atmospheric pressure only on a science channel recently, like WOW! for New Ideas..... Non T/C yet.

Three of our cars have Turbo's. Your all gonna have one sooner or later. My first was a 1982 Saab Turbo, small 2.0L 4 cylinder with V6 power and V8 Torque. No brainer. GM bought Saab and are employing these on every line of car from Chevy to Cadillac. BMW, AUDI, Volvo, Kia, Hyundai, etc... all moving to Turbos.

I believe one of My older cars does have a T-C, it must be hidden in that black metal vacuum booster something can(looks like a tomato juice can) with hose/coupled and mounted rigid. Stays very warm at times.....

If you can afford it, it's worth it. Much like if you can afford to modify your existing vehicle and you plan to keep it for five years or so, you can always get more mileage out of it than what's standard and expected. I did it when I was a kid with my parents cars, I can do more today than back then.
