The 6.4 has the sequential turbos... One small one feeding a larger one! NOT twins.... This guys knows that there are two turbos on his truck, but never researched the proper word for it... He just assumes it's a "twin turbo"..

That is what I thought until I did some research/ heard some members teach on them in the 6.4 section

Twins= two similar sized turbos each feeding their own side of the engine...

Sequential= one smaller one feeding one larger one INLINE with each other. The small one helps spool, while the larger one helps up top

Does the 6.4 have twins?

By ford classifying it as a twin= gas guzzler tax. Turbo assist= none.

I don't think you can have a gas guzzler tax in vehicles that aren't EPA rated for fuel mileage (since they are exempt). But I could be wrong....
