Yeah that was an idea I saw thrown around on the 300hp thread quite a bit though. Seems everyone wants to slap on a giant turbo but nobody is sure if the 1.6L can spool it well enough.Would really only benefit the Fiesta if you wanted to go to a huge turbo with lots of lag for the sake of a huge power number.
Hmm, possible former Ion Redline/ Cobalt SS owner?Its my understanding that twincharging is usually done by supercharging an already turbo'd motor. I understand there are a ton of logistics behind it and often is not cost effective. Had a M62 lying around for my previous car soo >.>
Compounding is different is it not? Twincharging is easy compared to compounding.Compound boost is a royal pain in the ass. Tuning nightmare, lots of moving parts and variables, and the blower both takes power to make power, and eventually becomes a restriction point when getting in higher power applications. My buddies terminator had Helion's TT/stock Eaton compound boost kit, and once we turned the wick up the blower became the main restriction and it actually made more power pulling the blower off and putting an N/A intake on it. Guess my point is, just choose a turbo that meets your needs.
You're thinking of the compound setups that supras use I think, where they run two different turbo sizes (small and a larger) inline. Compound boost as far as I know, refers to boost coming from two different sources, ex: roots/twin screw/centrifugal blower "powering" a turbo.Compounding is different is it not? Twincharging is easy compared to compounding.
I thought compounding is a GT28R to get you started off then a GT40R for top end. That always needs crazy boost controlling methods and crazy manifold set ups
