^,^^ The advantage of higher torque at low rpm (=higher power at low rpm) only matters when you are at low revs, which only happens once from idle, afterwards you are shifting at higher rpm so it becomes irrelevant.
This advantage of turbo is negated by the time penalty of turbo lag, when you get only the power of 6 instead of 8 cylinders at zero boost.

Area under Power curve, hp/weight, and drag at high speed, you guys have mentioned are completely accurate as I can see it.
