If you're gonna do it, why not just do it right instead of adding one way back there. Dumb I think.

Retarded!!! It's open to the elements, it can get damaged easily, the piping is way to visible and susceptible to getting damaged easily... The list goes on.

That's what I was thinking. Plus wouldn't the second turbo being so far from the first create more lag and kinda negate the whole compounds concept??

I'm no turbo expert on that subject, but that seems to make sense.

Wow, really too many problems to list. Pressure drop between the turbo has to be awful, the length of pipe separating them cools the exhaust gas way too much, there goes efficiency, then what has been said, exposed to elements, the amount of lag that that stupid long intake pipe has will create SO much lag, my 2 cents

Leaks oil BAD! Also no expert on multi-turbo set-ups but isn't the large turbo supposed to be on the engine with the small turbo remote???

The big turbo is most often the atmosphere charger, the smaller one the high pressure turbo. Exhaust from the motor feeds the small turbo, the exhaust from the small turbo connects to the atmosphere turbo, air from the large turbo feeds the small turbo. That's my understanding of how most compounds are set up.

You know more then I. To push this farther, if a housing is flow benched and proven to only move so much air than putting the smaller turbo on either end how do you have more air than what the smallest turbo can flow through it?
