With both Avantis in a similar state of tune, an R1 Studebaker Avanti will outrun an R2 Studebaker Avanti up to about 25mph......True?

True.  The higher compression ratio (10.25:1 vs 9:1) for the R1 will give it the advantage.  The R2's blower doesn't contribute much until at least 2500 RPM.  Eventually, the R2 will blow past the R1.

Yes, TRUE it is!:)
