Turbo PZEV

I am really intrested in going Turbo with my PZEV. I am looking into it and checking around for prices and such. The stock compression is not too bad for a turbo pushing like 10PSI ish. I am wondering what is still required to be developed before this becomes possible. Fuel management may be a problem b/c of the lack of ECU upgrades at this time...but couldn't that be solved with a larger Fuel pump and a Super AFC? Just wondering because I am intrested :). Anyways, hope to hear whatever you guys got to say!

more volume fuel pump wont work because the computer adjusts amount of fuel based on demand. bigger injectors may help if the computer has the range.

well can't the Super AFC adjust the fuel curves to change that though?
