You could setup twins two ways:
1. The way I prefer where you have separate banks on the engine a left bank and right bank of cylinders. You run completely separate intake and exhaust systems. This is the best setup for balancing your turbos and making the most power. It is also the most expensive and time consuming method with tons of custom/modified parts.
2. The second method is to have two turbos each fed by a bank of cylinders on the exhaust side. You can tie the outlets together or leave them seperate. On the boost side you combine your turbo's upstream of the intercooler and you only need to run one waste gate on the boost side. This allows you to only use one MAF sensor and eliminates alot of the custom piping and manifolds. However you can probably make the same horsepower on a compound setup with faster spooling.
Here is a good website for sizing turbo's Borgwarner MatchBot
I did a quick match for a 6.0l running twins. 6.0l twins
The calculated outputs are in the first expandable area. As you can see you can make more power with the compounds if you want quick turbo response.
