I'm sure the lack of intercooler isn't helping me either.
I think the simple reason is I use a type 4 with alu cylinders and - as you mentioned also - a huge intercooler and water-meth injection plus knock control. Cooling abilty of all that is enormous.
Its a deadly combination on th track with mostly all stock type 4 engine parts, safe from the alu cylinders.
Not for everyone I totally agree, but just showed to me it CAN be done. Thats all I wanted to convey, whereas your post suggest that it could NOT be done. Thats just not true.

YMMV
