Well ok, Ive always thought a car would be faster and pump more juce with twin turbos than with a single because it will have boost through the whole rpm range so ive herd. Ok and now i hear having a single turbo is better so whats up with that please explain.

I don't know either but I hear a lot of guys switching out the twins in the FD for singles. I just thought it was to uncomplicate things. But it seems like they get a hell of a lot of horsepower out of a single. It may have something to do with boost control.

Think about it like this. Imagine blowing through 2 small straws, sure its gonna flow a little bit, now imagine blowing through one BIG straw. Oh and going single does clean up all the vacuum lines as well.
