Lol, disregard the size of the turbocharger. The volume in the intake manifold/cylinder head ports remains the same. So the only way to get more mass is to increase pressure or decrease temperature (very likely the main piece that adds power if pressure remains the same). You may get more flow from the compressor but you are still forcing the air into the same amount of space (volume).
