I needs the feedbacks. Can this motor handle a Turbo? SC? Camshafts

A few 2012s at SEMA were FI:

The COBB car was Turbo and the Roush car was Supercharged.

I'm sure the motor could handle uprated cams just fine but no one at this point produces any. Remember this motor has variable cam timing on both the intake and exhaust sides.

With 12:1 compression, I would not put any boost to it unless its on 100 plus octane racing fuel.
Yeah, I'm thinking that those boosted vehicles at SEMA likely had been torn apart. GDI engines can take more combustion chamber pressure without detonating, so typical thinking doesn't apply. There's just not enough research out here at this time to say.

The COBB car had custom Cosworth forged 10.0:1 pistons!

Just means direct injection, which also means you can run 12.0:1 compression on pump gas.
