Default Twin Turbo 951?

I have 2 K26-6 Turbos... could I twin turbo?

Has anyone ever completed a twin turbo project?

I'd only have to tie in the new turbo, right? Just thinking outside the box for a winter project.

no. It's retarded. It makes absolutely no sense, technically nor fiscally.
Go away. You are not welcome here.

I seen a Twin Turbo Boxster at Porsche today... figured atleast one crazy nut on Rennlist had a twin turbo set up.


The boxster was a 986 2.5L.

No you can't, it's retarded and therefore far outside your mental and mechanical ability. And as far as a winter project, why don't you try going somewhere without internet access and stay there for a long long time.

Yes, it's done all the time! You should do it and show us some more pictures of that beauty! One thing that helps is to get that cone filter closer to the turbo, and try to exhaust some of the hotside from the primary turbo into it. That improves overall efficiency with the twin-turbo setup. Good luck

Most (and I use most because there are cars like the Toyota Supra) use a twin turbo set-up on an engine with two banks of cylinders (I.E. a V or "flat" design). Twin turbo charging a four cylinder is, as ehall stated already, a waste of time and money. Especially on a 2.5L SOHC 8v engine with already limited room in the engine bay.

It makes more sense to dump 20000+ dollars, in cash, out of an airplane, over Somalia.

Gentlemen,
As stated yesterday by John Stephens, this loser is simply trolling. He is a sick sadist that thrives on the abuse he gets here.

May I propose a Rule?
-DO NOT RESPOND TO ANYTHING THIS IDIOT POSTS, HE THRIVES ON ATTENTION...GOOD OR BAD. HE WILL WITHER AND DIE WITHOUT IT.

yup. He is just doing it to see if he can get away with it. It helps our case for a ban though. Someone making thread after thread to cause drama is a reason for ban.

So I guess he is just helping us out. If he would only post every once in awhile he might be able to get away with it. Making thread after thread is helping our case for ban.


Can someone start a poll thread. So we can vote to ban him please.
