Daily driven aircooled turbos... who's done it?

With Turbo and Super charging you can create massive horsepower with vw motors.

Well it could work for sure. But I don't know about your quest for mpg. Once you feel that boost you will want to be into it all the time. That isn't going to help your mpg's at all! If you keep the turbo out of the engine bay that would help too. Turbos generate heat. That's just part of the deal.
