Default Turbo 3800'*

If you know me don't get excited. Just researching to see what is out there.

I notice ZZP has a turbo kit that can be enhanced with an intercooler, but I don't see much in the way of mods that benefit from the turbo, such as cams, heads, etc.

Intense has a turbo cam, information about recommended heads for 2xturbo cams, but I don't see anything in the way of a turbo kit.

1.) It seems hard to just come up with a turbo kit w/o offering a huge array of other highly recommended mods.
2.) How did ZZP manage this?
3.) Is Intense just offering this for future turbo projects?

I've been out of the loop for awhile and it seems not much has happened in the way for N/A hardcore performance (ie: boosting an N/A in some way) and all paths point to questions.

Info required. Thanks.

Hmmm...I found this:

New ZZP turbo testing. Looks like a few too many of those types of WOT'* and your motor mounts are toast.

Intense was dealing the STS remote turbo setups for a while. It may have something to do with the turbo cams listed on their website.
