"Turbonormalizing" is the installation of a turbocharger on a normally aspirated engine, enabling the aircraft to maintain SEA LEVEL power to altitude. Standard atmospheric pressure is 29.92" and the turbonormalizer is setup so as not to exceed sea level pressure. In comparison, "Turbosuperchargers" provide the engine with manifold pressures exceed sea level pressure. Turbonormalizing has very distinct advantages such as increased airspeed, a better rate of climb, an ability to fly over weather and high terrain, and reduced takeoff roll at high altitude airports without having to use highly modified engines.

All forced induction engines that have the capibility to exceed standard atmospheric pressure aren't always "turbo-supercharged". There are many applications that use just a turbo or just a supercharger to achieve 29.92+" of MAP.

i understand that turbonormalizing is introducing a turo or supercharger to a normal engine. Unlike in a car to make the car go quicker, in an aircraft the turbocharger simply allows the engine to perform more equally all altitude unlike a normally aspirated engine whose performance decreases as we go high.
