50% sounds high but if you know the psi at 650 hp and that this is with standard fuel it would be easier to compare. The GT2 RS as mentioned before makes similar power at similar displacement with 23 psi and the same 9:1 compression rate. That should be about 2 psi extra on the S55 at 10.2:1 compression rate. If the GT-R with 650hp runs 23psi as well it's an increase of 10 psi from stock. 2/10 is 20%.
