Well then we really can't use it for much. We need to be sure that the a/c were equipped with MW-50 & C3. If the Dora was running at increased boost pressure alone (1,900 PS @ 3,250 RPM) it would allow the Tempest to slowly escape.
With MW-50 & C3 the Dora-9 had a top speed of 615 km/h at SL.

I happened to come across this. Some may find it interesting - Tempest Performance:
Tempest V Performance
August 12, 1944 - In an armor cover mission at the Falaise track, Charlie Rife, 368th FG, 395th FS, takes 37mm fllak rounds to both wings. His wingman, Richard Kik, takes a 20mm round to the engine that knocks out two cylinders. Both make it back.
