Re: Possible to fit another K24 under the R hood??? (Volvo Guy)

You could probably fit one in under the hood right next to the intake box on top of the black cover that doesn't do anything.<p>On the other hand, I can think of much better ways of getting a spare turbo from point a to b. Like the trunk. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Seriously I don't see how it would do you any good. If you want to do a twin turbo setup, you'd have to go sequential, which would mean not using a K24. Twin identical turbos on a 5 cylinder don't really match up too well. Can't do 2.5 cylinders per turbo.

As the above posts have already said, I don't know how 2 turbos would help, unless you had a set up like Audi's bi-turbo system which have 2 different turbo blades, one for low rpm's and one for higher rpm's. This would also necessitate some pretty creative software writing for the ecu. Would be fun to have though, but just not gonna happen with our engine.

Nobody's going to write an ECU program for Bi Turbo setup or nobody is going to do a Bi Turbo setup??? Or both??? How much would it be to do a custom job like this????

Pssst....! <p>try "twin charged". ask HKS, they had a setup like this back in the 80's on their supercharged MR2 hooking up with a HKS turbo. that thing was insanely fast.<p>can you imagine? supercharge + turbocharge = M3 eater. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
