The smaller turbo on the sequential diddn't give the omgboost feeling I love so much and although the second turbo was quite a kick in the pants, it diddn't kick into so high of an rpm that I diddn't really get to enjoy it often in everyday driving.

Maybe that could have been helped with a tune, but I wasn't even aware that was possible until I discovered this place.
There are actually sequential controllers that could be installed to modify when the larger turbo would kick in.

However it is still a pain to set up as having the larger turbo kick in earlier doesn't always mean better. You need enough exhaust to spin it!!
