Question Twin Turbo

how much of an impact will a twin instead of a single make in preformance?
is it a good investment?
and how much $$$$$ is it for a decent one?

turbo's

well that a trick question.
what injectors,what rods,what tuner,what truck,what gears
so there is alot to think about.
what are you going to match it with?
what are you going to use it for?
faster spool up low end and top end.
there about $5000 to $8000 for a good set up
this would be a good match 62/70 and a K-31 or all out,
would start with a K-31-84 exhaust housing going into a big brother.
100+boost.full built motor.
best stay with a single.

I have been told that on a PSD making less then 500 there is nothing that twin can do that good single cant do. I think it would up the cool factor more then anything.

Feel free to correct me if I am wrong!

My thoughts exactly. What are your current mods? You need a lot of supporting work done before you can even start to think about compounds.

and yes I'd say he is just looking into more of the cool factor and well Marty has a single and I'm sure he is pushing well over 500rwhp
