great numbers indeed, is a supercharger PSI different than a turbo PSI? Cuz at lets say a focus with a turbo at like 11 PSI runs 230, so at like 20 PSI should be considerably higher than 300 hp?

The turbo focus has 10.2 compression while the supercharger focus has lower 9:1 compression. Turbo is the easier way to make big power over the supercharger.

PSI is a relative term...it's more about CFM's....10 psi on a small turbo is not as much air as 10 psi on a big turbo....same applies to a supercharger....

The is correct. It would be easier to make 300fwhp with a 20 psi of boost with a gt3071R than it would be with a smaller GT28R turbo. The gt3071r has more cfm than the smaller gt28R turbo. The gt3071r turbo also spools up about 1,000 rpms+ later.
