...don't get me wrong, I'm not disputing your results!

...just saying that increased boost, sooner in the RPM curve, produces BIGGER results sooner, but typically doesn't change top-end velocity...unless the additional boost is also maintained higher up the RPM-curve (dangerous).

...available HP and vehicle aero-drag are what limit top-end velocity. But, if the engine can produce more HP at a higher RPM, then the upper MPH limit will be increased, but only slightly because aero-drag is a cubic-functon of velocity.
