FI vs NA = (In general terms) Two completely different HP/TQ curves.

So, back to my graph. The area in between 6500-7200. Would that not be caused by valve float? Or is that generalization not valid?

Agreed, but they aren't held at steady state output in the real world, and they get heat soaked in the real world. That's why an N/A car will typically beat a supercharged car with a bit more horsepower, and even sometimes a lot more horsepower. I've seen it myself, on both sides of the coin.
