Twin turbo evo

This will probably sound like a noob question but im trying to learn. Can you put a twin turbo kit on an Evo VIII to reduce the turbo lag?

Why would ya wanna do that, that would only make it worse, especially on an inline 4.

I think he's just giving a hypothetical situation, and it can be done, but I don't think the lag is really that much to install a second turbo, and yeah it would ruin the engine pretty fast lol.

I know that the Veyron has 4 small turbos that produce almost no lag, and give direct and almost instant throttle...it all depends on how big the Turbo is

Also the engine size, and 16 cylinders and 4 turbos is the same as 4 cyl per turbo...right? lol

I thought on a twin turbo kit, one turbo runs at low RPMs and the other kicks in on the higher RPMs.

Sometimes that's what they'll do, other times there's two same sized turbos that provide constant boost...

Well could you get a kit that runs one turbo at low RPMs and have another kick in at high RPMs to lesson the turbo lag without destroying the engine? O is the inline-4 too small?

Look it up. The EvoVIII MR FQ400 does 0-60 in 3.5 seconds. The evo VI does it in 4.5ish. And sorry it has 405bhp. I got it mixed up with the VI.
