Idea- triple turbo

I know this would be an enormous pain to do, but my concept would be taking the twin turbo Powerstroke idea (the one turbo per bank, so a true twin) and expanding it.

It would still use the one turbo per bank, but there would be a third turbo, in the stock location in the valley of the engine, that would help spool the other two. I believe it would be a high pressure turbo spooling two low pressure turbos?

The plumbing would probably be a nightmare, but it still sounds cool.
