a bit more detail would be really helpful for those of us who do not have access to the book
the only substitute for cubic inches is BOOST!!!

Oh my gosh, do you really want to go to the expense of Cosworth 16 valve heads, turbo, compression ratio that would require high octane race gas, a cam so hot you could not use it on the street, etc.

If you want that much power, better to put in a V-8
1973 Pinto Runabout with upgraded 2.0 liter & 4 speed, and factory sunroof. My first car, now restored, and better than it was when it rolled off the assembly line!

Just read about George Ohio Montgomery's 74 2.0 turbo motor.it was reportedly pushing 500 horsepower with 26lbs of boost.totally crazy for a 4banger.makes me jealous if only I knew what he did

If you liked that, then read up on Buddy Ingersoll too.

Thought I'd just look that up real quick, and read about it. I've been copy/pasting and reading for hours now! Those early turbo guys must have had some deep pockets to refine their systems to those levels. I can just picture a pile of hole filled pistons in a smokey heap behind the shop. Some really great reading!
