Very few aftermarket companies make power adders specifically for my truck that are reasonably priced.

I figure if i could buy a decent turbo for around 5-800 with wastegate, upgrade the injectors, make exhaust and intake tubing, and buy a used intercooler, then tune it for less then 3000 i'd be happy.
Not to bash the build, but couldn't you change the torque curve with a custom cam and some good tuning on premium? Spend about a grand to 1500 and no lag?
