I do know the civic before I sold it would misfire over 70-75% load and I kept it between 1750 and 2300 so I honestly think the math would probably work out to I had maybe 30 horsepower. From the memories, I had yeah that's probably correct. lol
A lot of momentum driving. Could maintain everything except those semi passing lanes up hill, and torrential downpour interstate at 70 mph. But it also weighed 2400lb and had a better drag area than the focus. So probably compare it to a 50bhp Focus.
Fun fact the focus makes 1.6 bar of boost. If you divide that down that is 78bhp naturally aspirated ish. I don't think thats dangerous.
