I've heard people say this before, so you are not alone in that thinking -- but this doesn't make any sense to me. 190hp vs 220hp in a 2000lb car, plus all the added torque - with the same driver in the same car in a n/a vs a supercharged car it's obvious that you would be able to pop out of the corners quicker with the supercharged one - there is no way it can't be faster. With proper ECU tune you can squeeze another 10 to 20 hp on top of that.
