Add in a super long final gear and you'll now have the Ford Focus VX :P
This is a fun scenario to consider, but only as a hypothetical concept.
From a practical point of view it would be absolutely terrible (even dangerous) to drive a 2,800 lb car with a 1.0 liter 3 cylinder NA engine in the US.

It would have a 0-60 mph time of 60 seconds, going downhill with a tailwind.

It's easy to "remove" the turbo from the car, simply unhook the wastegate actuator arm from the wastegate.
The wastegate will remain open and create zero boost.

I really don't think it would be "dangerous". I mean people drive Mitsubishi mirages...

It's worse than that. Car & Driver reported that their 2015 Focus Ecoboost sedan weighed 2,972 lbs!

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.
