Default '99 S70 Turbo upgrade from single to twin

TD04s are cheap and I have two 15Gs sitting around, I can't find any instance of someone twin turbo charging a P80 car so I'm questioning the practicality of it, at least with the turbos themselves, would the TD04 be worth using for this application? since it's rather small.

My goal is mostly the novelty of having twin turbos, but my aim is for at least 300.

No point. Find a P80 series V70R and start harvesting.

Would be interesting to see a budget twin turbo five cylinder.. Perhaps some sort of compound charging?

Yeah... Good way to use ALL that extra space you have between your motor and the firewall fitting a twin turbo setup!

It could be done but it would take a lot of hacking. I suppose it depends on how much effort the op puts it. He could just install a bigger turbo, new exhaust, and get it tuned and call it a day but maybe that's just too easy.

More bang for your buck with 5 Tesla battery packs. One feeding each cylinder.

Owen Developments in Oxford did a 4 cylinder concept. It's actually pretty sweet.

Barely skimmed this thread because no point in reading. But has anyone mentioned 5 is an odd number yet?

I recall saying the point of it is to have twin turbo

We all thought this was a Joke as you need the same number of cylinders running each turbo. That limits you to 1 or 5 turbo's with a 5 cylinder.

Turbos are cheap enough these days, if you can not afford 1 bigger turbo you certainly can not afford what seting up 2 turbo's would cost and then the cost of putting it all back to how it was as it does not work.
