2nd turbo?

Hi, I'm the owner of a black 1996 850R wagon, and I'm thinking about putting in a second turbo, running in series with the stock one. A friend of mine pulled something similar with a Porsche, brought the compression up to some insane figures, and his car HAULS. I was leaning towards a second high-pressure Volvo one, any advice?

P.S. - The gray plastic on the trim strips has all cracked off, and it looks horrible. Is anyone else having this problem??

agreed...internals need strengthening b4 anything over 300hp can be done..look up tme.com for some info
there are some really fast spooling turbos that will give u a broad power band and low end punch. stuff like ball bearing turbos, and titanium turbos...
porsche 911 turbo is flat-6 twinturbo...definitely flat-6, but likely twinturbo. i think only porsche and subaru use flat-6 or flat-4 (for the latter) engines...
