How can "boost = turbo" when boost can be had also with a supercharger.  Boost is a measurement of pressure provided by forced induction and doesn't just mean "turbo".

 I agree , both superchargers and turbochargers utilizes boost . Maybe a street word for turbo also is SNAIL more appropriate o di na ito considered technical term ?? :)

...depends on which unit you will be using for the HP! ;)

i think KG-m yields kW, while lb-ft yields HP. CMIIW...

per

KPH= Kilometers Per Hour :)
