2.3L TT Setup??

Hey guys I was just wondering a few things.

I was wondering if anyone has tried running a Twin Turbo Setup on any of the 2.3's?


I have 2 Ko3 Turbos
Pipe/Pipe Bender
My friend and dad are both fabricators so anything custom isn't an issue.
AND all the means to make this work


But the big question is..... Is it worth running a setup like this?? and has anyone ever tried anything like this before.
Any and All help is appreciated

Thanks Guys

F2 built a twin turbo focus a few years back. It looked cool but I don't think it ever ran right. Personally I would stick to a nice single turbo set up. It will make more power and be a lot simpler

Still curious on if this would work or be worth the effort... not looking for CRAZY power, but really decent Mid range power

From the looks of that setup when the first wastegate opens at the spring psi it starts spinning up the second. You can can see the difference in the size of the exhaust housing. That setup is pretty sick!



A single small turbo can easily max out the internals of the Duratec. I would say with the money/time you'd spend making the twin turbo setup work; you could build a 2.3 to handle higher boost then get a single turbo capable of producing higher boost levels. Then never have to worry about anything breaking.

But hey, if your set on doing it, do it! I'd give you mad respect for putting in the time and actually doing it.

Twins may look great but when some guy with a properly sized single comes up and just stomps your ass you'll wonder why you didnt just run a single like everyone else is...........

The setup that F2 ran was not twin turbo. That's sequential turbo when they're different sizes. If they're TWINS, they have to be identical.
