So I was just reading a comment here, and something struck me. People often say that a higher compression ratio will aid in spooling a turbo quicker. However I don't think this is the case at all. Increasing the CR (comp ratio) increases thermal efficiency, thus reducing waste heat produced. Turbos depend on hot gases to spool, so one would think that there would be less heat available to the turbo. Am I right?
