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??

The only reason to run 2 turbos on an odd number of cylinders is to have one small and one large. Is it really necessary? How much power do you want and how much do you want to spend? I think you could do better with a ball bearing turbo that will spool up faster and still provide plenty of boost.
