What you are asking is outside of the main topic but note worthy.
Changing cams is not complicated and requires nothing else to be done. The power band is dependant upon many things besides the grind of the lobes. You move the torque curve with cam timing.
Reduction of lag is important for driveability. With a modern turbo and proper cam timing adjustment you can produce sub-2000rpm boost threshold.
You can also tune in or tune out a lumpy idle on many mild cams.
