Forced Ind Torque way up but nec HP????

I was punching some numbers using "CAM QUEST" and I noticed with even a small Turbo Torque Increases greatly at even 6psi and HP sometimes declines???
ex:
NA torque 398 peak
Hp 420 peak
add turbo 6psi
torque 478 peak
HP 410 peak
Same motor combo

I answered my questions. Forced inducton gives a motor more torque because essentially you are making it a bigger engine. More force when the cylinder combusts and forces the piston down=TORQUE

Hopefully you will actually get to try it out in real life. Be sure to bring a doggie poop bag just in case.

I took a nice strong 355 NA and did a nice burn out for the shop guys. 18 hours later with the 6-71 and 2 750 dp I did it again..same motor. Not even the same car!!! haha Made believers out of the whole gang. 355 made like a 502 except idles smoother and gets better mpg.
