I wouldnt think so Anytime you step up to twins your usually pushin higher numbers and a stock blower just wouldnt handle the heat or boost. Thats what my logical thinkin tells me, i may be wrong

I think you could probably use the stock 1 as the first turbo then your 2nd needs to be upgraded. I may be wrong, but thats what I think.

You could use the stock turbo as your 1st stage but i wouldnt. I would use a 38r at my 1st stage then like a 42 or something.

Why would you even try a stock turbo as a secondary turbo? Your second turbo is to be the bigger turbo because it is getting feed by the smaller one.

I am pretty sure that in a compound setup the first turbo is larger than the second one. I know that is the case in multi stage air compressors. If you if you send compressed air to a larger stage it will decompress

i dont know the stages but the exhaust goes into the smaller turbo first then into the bigger one. the inductions side is opposite, air goes into the larger turbo first and into the smaller one second

That is absolutely right

You want something like a 38r back on the pedistal for the exhaust off the manifolds then from there you run the exhaust out of it into the bigger turbo then out.

But of the air side of things you want your air filter on the big turbo and then going into the smaller one then into the intake.
