There is definitely a difference in platforms and their consumers. If I told my Honda friends $7000 for a turbo kit they would poop themselves.
I hear what you are saying though.

I know you would like to hear "Yeah buddy, Stage 3 will be 450hp / 500ft/lb on stock turbo"... But that's dreaming... Wet dreams...
True, their is no magical power once your turbo's can't breathe.
