Made this it's own thread, off topic where it was.

Single is adequate, most twin systems are for larger or V type engines.

With enough money and time anything can be built , your far better off going single turbo

"twin" wouldnt serve much purpose. dual turbo could be done easy enough and i almost talked tim into fabbing up a job for me to do just that. if you plan on running a really big turbo for huge boost that will take forever to spool up then you can in theory run a small turbo that is bolted strait to a bigger turbo. the small turbo spools very quickly which makes the bigger turbo spool even faster. this wouldnt be terribly hard to do actually but it doesnt really serve much purpose on the focus. you dont need so much boost for this car that you could justify doing this. if its just for the cool factor and being different then sure.

Twin turbo is VERY hard to do , you have to have a way to turn off the Exh to the smaller turbo or it will over spool when it starts making big power

seriously 300whp in this car is enough, it beats a lot of cars out there from a roll

Haha no offense but stick with what Tom says.... He's the Jesus of these forums. He has more builds under his belt then most. Just stick with his recommendations and you'll be better off. Although possible it would extremely cost inefficient. If you want to do it awesome.... But if your gonna do a TT system then go all out and fab a 2jz swap and have yourself a truly unique foci >:P
