^Because there are places in America where swapping a v8 isnt CARB legal and having a bolt in hipo motor that can easily be pulled every 2 years that looks near stock when chp pulls you over and pops your hood is FTMFW.

Twin turbo on a 4 cyl is teh failz, twin turbo on a sohc 4cyl is teh EPIC FAILZ. The motor cant move enough air to properly spool 2 turbos, and 2 of the smallest turbos will get walked all over by 1 properly sized turbo(think wwpr2jzttd) what would people running a 2jztt do.

The best thing is to find old cheap forged thunderturd turbo coupe 2.3 lima internals for mad cheap and just build the motor for boost and run it till it blows like a d16. The money you spend on other parts that dont add power would likely buy you most of a turbo set up.
