low 15s with some possible tranny work in the future. think about it like this... sea level atmospheric pressure is 14.7 psi making 130 crank hp.... + 4 or 5 pounds of boost... making about 33% more hp which = 170 crank less 15% driveline loss to get u about 145-150 whp on low boost. those places that say 50% more hp pretty much get their figures by saying they make 50% more psi with the turbo vs naturally aspirated. not super accurate but gives u a ball park.

superchargers like the JRSC u can use an aftermarket intake on btw
