More revs, more compression, more cubes. Turbos are more efficient than superchargers, because they capture exhaust gas expansion in addition to velocity and static pressure. Rule of thumb: half as much power to run a turbo as a supercharger. But my back of the envelope math suggests that in-cylinder compression is even more efficient, and I believe the trend towards higher compression even in OEM turbo motors is evidence for this. The SkyActiv gas-diesel comparison is the strongest case.

More revs are, in my opinion, more exciting than more boost. That's subjective. Also subjective is your stress level trying to tune a wastegate and blow-off system full of unknown unknowns, which can grenade your engine at will.

'92 Accord. In the family since new, I bought it 12 years ago for $3k. Still running it because (1) I can almost drive it in my sleep (2) money is freedom and (3) it has never stranded me.

The Paganis and Koenigseggs tend to be the ones where it's done right, even if it's overdone.

Didn't that have a lot to do with existing right-of-ways and land available for setting up railroad, telecom, or other types of lines?

I'm a little unclear: To get an HSV W427, should I crash a car in Colorado or Australia?
