There are SO many of those stories (there's also a guy on MUD that ran into a stakebed that peeled the hood back)...I'm pretty sure there's no substitute for Toyota engineering. Read IdahoDoug's descriptions of most of those accidents and you'll see how well 80 series trucks are thought out.

turbo lag can be addressed by currectly sizing the impeller, using dual stage, and or pop off valves and boost filter/regulators.

Straight six motors with automatics are awesome for turboing. most people go bigger on the turbo than nescessary.

You can lesson the lag by speeding up the spool time or lessening the boost but the fact remains that when 0 atmospheric is reached the bypass on an already spooled SC closes or a waist gate on an idle turbo opens. Linear or lag!

$4K

Power doesn't come cheap anymore...I assume to that you can probably add $2-3K in engine PM work (HG etc) and be looking at a real world cost of $6-7K all said and done. Maybe I don't hate going 30 mph up the passes while towing all that much
