Sorry for not specifying before. I was looking into building a parallel turbo set up. I know the older subaru twin turbos were sequential. I was looking into swapping that motor into my old gc8. People referred to the lag in between the turbos as a "valley of death" haha. My question is what if i just use 2 cylinders per turbo. One on each side of the engine and have them route back into a single intake manifold (obviously). Not a sequential set up where the turbos have to switch on and off but a set up where both the turbos are creating vacuum. I'm sure that this set up will create a bit of lag but I do believe that there is a lot of power behind this. I don't know I'm still trying to figure out the pros and cons of this set up.

does two 20gs making 7lbs of boost = one 20g making 14lbs?
I'm not thinking about 20gs just an example
