I'd have to disagree with you there Robert.  My Big Beast (5KCSTQ) has no 
prollum hitting the limiter in third or fouth, does 30-70 in 7.8sec's and 
still has the stock cam, Albeit advanced one tooth, other than that all I 
got's is a IA2, Adj Wastegate, Pop-off valve, K&N, and Platins.  Next 
Step is a PDQSHIP Turbo and no cam.
