Twin stock turbos

Well I have an extra stock Garrett turbo and was just wondering if it's possible or even worth the time to set up twin (or sequential or compound) turbos? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

That's what I figured but in theory would it even give a significant increase in power?

My dad is an automotive engineer and we have a fully equipped automotive prototyping shop and I've got a lot of time on my hands so fabrication shouldn't be too much of an issue unless it's extreme.

Stock turbos arent efficient enough.. thats the problem.. with some good snails you could have a heck of a truck, but thats alot more money then you want to think of after injectors, supporting mods, and etc.

Then I guess I would be better off selling the turbos and buying one good one

IMO that's a better plan.

If you ran true twins (a Parallel set up) then the stock chargers will be very laggy since they are designed to have 8 holes feeding them exhaust gas instead of just 4...so you would need a LOT of fuel to get the benefit.\

If you ran them in sequential/compound twins you wouldn't gain much if anything since you don't have a difference in the compressor sizes so you aren't really netting any additional flow.

IMHO ditch the turbos and get a good single.
