Twin Turbo with stock turbos?

Not sure why but this came to me today while lookin around classifieds. Made me curious if you can setup a twin turbo system with a 03 and 05 turbo. I am picking up a 05 motor next weekend. I know on dodges people were using stock hx30 and hx40 turbos (if i recall the sizes right) for a twin turbo setup. Had me wondering if it can be done with our 6.0 motor also. I am not sure if the 03 and 05 turbos spool any different.

I'm not an expert by any means, but I don't see how it would work considering both are VGT turbos and have virtually identical air flow.

Are you talking about makeing a true twin set up? Like one turbo runs off the right bank and the other off the left? If so no I don't think it will work. And it will be ALOT of fabricating. And it's never been done on a 6.0.

If you are talking about compund turbos it would be pointless. And a compound set up with a stock turbo and a larger turbo has been tryed and the stock turbo just can't take the added stress.

You would have problems controlling the VGT's, not only that it cant be done, Ive had talks with the big time gamers in this there would be no point and wouldnt work well, a fixed turbo is alot different then a vgt.
