    2 turbos=good, 3 turbos=better?

    Disclaimer: (I haven't taken my ADD meds lately so my mind tends to daydream and wander all over the place.)

    I've been wondering about a setup like the sequential turbo on the 6.4 powerstroke. I'm sure it's not practical, but what if you plumbed a large single after the two smaller turbos? Do I need to go refill my meds and keep coloring or is there something to this?

    This actually happened on a C32 AMG in Dubai, someone with too much money made it happen...the supercharger on that car has a clutch in it, so they would use the supercharger for the low end torque, then have the twin turbos kick in at around 3k rpm's...

    Waste of money.

    More fuel

    Larger turbo's....

    If that doesn't satisfy you then 4.0/ported heads/cam

    I promise you heads/cam would add a TON. Probably same as a TUNE would gain on a stock vehicle.

    the problem is FUEL FUEL FUEL!!!

    To put it to you like this. We currently have the capability of making around 700HP with the current available mods with NO way to fuel it (without getting fancy)

    We need larger HPFP thats reasonably priced (I'd pay $500) and double capacity fuel pumps in tank.

    VW/Audi had a 1.4 liter in some of their models abroad that were fitted with both a supercharger and turbocharger. I think many locomotive engines also have both turbos and blowers also.

    Now three turbos, one being sequential would be interesting on an eco. Sounds like an exhaust/intake piping nightmare.
