Twins...

How hard would it be to fabricate a set of twin turbos for a 7.3l?

Would it be more efficient just to buy them from BWD?

(If I can actually get them from BWD)

Well why do you want twins? What do you have planned injector wise? Studs, springs, valves, rods, oil, etc....

I mainly just want twins because very few people have them.
Eventually i plan on completely building an engine for a 7.3 (studs, springs, rods, pistons, head work, pushrods, lifters, possibly a cam?, ect, ect...). Still havent decided between the OBS or the SD.

Basically i want to build a 7.3 to break 700 hp (if not more) on fuel only. I know it seems like a long shot but i know it can be done.


COMPOUND TURBO
intake->turbo 1-> turbo 2-> intercooler-> motor
up pipes-> turbo 1-> turbo 2-> exhaust

So would 1000 on drugs be out of the question?
