    Negative Ale.When you compound both induction systems its referred to as twin-charging.Bi-turbo just means there are two parrallel turbos one for each engine bank.

    Twin-charging is possible with a Roots style blower to mount the TB between the two compressors.The blower would also need to be big enough to out compress the turbo.Its possible but you would have a dark road ahead of you for sure

    Anything is possible with enough money but there's no point

    Agreed. Zero point. We don't have any "lag" to speak of due to the design of the clutch in combination with the impeller/pump drive and we have no lack of boost due to wheel combinations available. Zero point at all. Unless your just in the mood to spend useless money...if that is the case send some my way. I'll put it to use

    With a twin screw you can further compress the boosted output of the turbo (You do not need a bigger SC, but you better have a very good IC core and heat exchanger) The reason you can do this is the way a twin screw creates boost.

    You would not do it with a centrifugal SC, which creates boost the same as a turbo just one is exhaust powered the other is geared off your engines crank

    Detroit Diesel used to have an engine with two turbos feeding a blower. I saw one at the parts counter of the Stewart & Stevenson dealership in Dallas (Cockrell Hill) but I can't find the pics I took. So here's a pic of one that looks a bit different that I found on the interwebs. You have to look close to see the blower, but it's there!

    While you guys over here are draming, why not go for a compound Turbo setup. Compact simple design, perfect for a Jetski.
