      general run of thumb: on a larger, less aggressive turbo (ie gt30 on a 1.8t) 75hp per cylinder.

      There are a couple of turbo cars out there already. Though I don't think the engine is where you will have the issues, it's the transmission. You'll need a bigger cooler to keep the temps in check, and hope it all stays together.

      The builds I have seen threads for seem to be very conservative, tuned to a mild 400hp or so.
