Turbo horsepower

Just curious (my Z is NA, never owned a turbo car....yet) when you say turbo mods and stuff like that will get you up to 300 hp, is that horsepower mostly found at the higher rpms, or do you get good increases at lower rpms? If my general feelings are correct, I'm guessing you feel that horsepower after the car starts going, but low end power & torque won't be helped much. And, again, I'm guessing if you do all that internal (pistons, camshaft, etc) you'll get a lot more power in the lower end as well as increased uppper end. I'm not saying I know this, I'm asking if this is accurate? If there really is a big difference, it seems to me it all depends on what kind of car you want, a car that accelerates good from a stop (quarter miler), or a car that you can stomp on it going 35 and take off, but needs to get going a bit from a stop before the power kicks in.
