If one turbo gets over 250 HP, can 2 turbos bring in 500 HP? I have 2 turbos and am looking to install. Any ideas?

TWO turbos? On a 5-cyl. engine? You cannot be serious...Sell one of them and invest the money you make on a nice mod for your C70.

not exactly an expert in turbos but from my understanding one bank of cylinders should only have one turbo, a V motor 2 heads MAY benefit from 2 turbos. but in several situations one BIG turbo may be better. in the I-5 t case , one turbo

An inline engine can have two turbos which may run sequentially (i.e. for an I-6 engine, one turbo would amount for 3 cylinders, etc.). But I do not think it would be possible to have twin turbos on a 5-cyl. engine.

In fact if you have 3 turbos you can go 750 HP and at 5 turbos you would be doing an amazing 1,250 HP...Yeah...right....People are crazy...

** Thanks for the laugh ** I needed this one. I don't think this guy was serious, it's like saying, my car will go faster if I put 2 engines in it.

Two Turbo's can be done, I would however suggest they be installed sequentially. That would be really trick!
Or even more fun runa supercharger and turbo set up like the old Lancia Delta rally car set-up.

I found a guy on turbobricks,com that had a twin turbo 16v head b230f. but I cant find the pics. It was pretty cool looking.

In Sweden a few people are running these setups. One doing twin KKK-K24 over 500 BHP.

Problem with the Volvo is space and the wrong balance on the 5 cylinder. But a sick brain could make it work I guess.
