Do it. I'd love to see you prove the nay-sayers wrong. Twin or sequential turbos are sexy.

I think it can be done without too too much hassle. Times have changed older T6s are showing up at the junkyard more frequently there should be an option for this.

Theres a guy on Savarturbo thats got one running atm. Started as a low budget project , looks like it got a bit more serious. Looks great , and runs real good
If you just want power , and not extra work , it will always be easier to use one decent turbo , though....
And forget about that supercharger crap , it will only bend rods , and at low boost as well.....

I'm 100% on board with this. Why? Because there's a difference between going fast and going interesting.

I don't think anyone on here disagrees with the idea that it COULD be done, I don't think anyone disagrees that going single turbo is better. But going twin turbo is pretty interesting.

Yes.

Interesting:

From interest and -⁠ing; from Anglo-French interest, ‘interest’; from Classical Latin interest meaning ‘it is important’, third person singular present indicative of interesse, ‘to be important’.

that makes someone think a lot and want to know more about it.

Now, I'll repeat my question.

I will ask youS to think about what is important here in order to restore sanity to this thread.

More interesting would be compound turbocharging.

Now I ask this, while "interesting" may have come from a word that meant important it still does not mean the exact same thing. Because a frog came from a tadpole doesn't make the frog a tadpole. Just because something started as A doesn't mean that it can't turn into B. In fact that is kinda how things work, they evolve.

OP if you do end up making this a reality please make a build thread.

No, I posted the ethymology first and the definition after (wich is the modern one).
The devolution of language is not evolution.

So:


AND AAAAAAAGAAAAAAAIN!

Gladly.

I shouldn't have used the phrase "devolution of language", but the "devolution in the mastery of (any given) language".

Yes, semantic shifting happens, the languages and the meaning of words change over time, there is nothing we can do aboutit and there is nothing wrong with that.

BUT

We think using language.
One could theorise that a lack of understanding of the language they are using to think could lead to cognitive problems..... like stuffing two turbos on a redblock AND being interested in that process.

perhaps devolution is not what you mean, just a decrease

devolution is a word that isn't working here, or many places at all

Yep, you are right, not the best choice of word, not at all.

What to you think about the highlited part here? (From Antidote V4.1)

1. Borrowing from Medieval Latin devolutio, ‘a rolling down’; from Classical Latin devolutus meaning ‘rolled down’, past participle of devolvere, ‘to roll down’.
2. From de⁠- and (e)volution; from Classical French évolution, ‘evolution’; from Classical Latin evolutio, ‘an unrolling’; from Classical Latin evolutus meaning ‘unrolled’, past participle of evolvere, ‘to unroll’.

- when a central government transfers or delegates power to a group or authority at a lower, more local level — The small towns demanded fair devolution.

legal – the legal transfer of property from one owner to another, especially when the first owner has passed away

formal – the descent to successive stages — the devolution of proper etiquette

biology – degeneration

i think descent to successive stages is an implication of a quantal hierarchy instead of gradual be-dumbimg of communication , and if you just mean corruptive simplification, you are guilty of corruptive complication by using words that barely get point across instead of clear, direct choices.

devolution does create a nice symmetry and rhythym when used with evolution in a sentence

when calling out dumbassersy, perhaps forego the poetic embellishment, as it sure to be lost
on the dumbass himself.
