Cubic inches + compression ratio = HP. Take the 1969-1970 series 472 cu.in. Cadillac V8. The HP peaked at 3800 rpm @ 365 HP, but at 4000 rpm the torque peaked at 500 ftlbs. So it has a lot to do with cam profiles, valve size, timing, etc.

Generally a turbo-supercharger (like ones on Detroit 2 stroke diesel v8's) that stack a turbocharger on top of an axial blower, produce tons of low end grunt, for big rigs, prison buses, etc...

So, to answer your question, yes and no...
