You can't twin turbo a 4 cylinder well you could but on a 4 cyl all the exhaust is on the same side and your turboing the same exhaust twice hence the uselessness

Not with a compound turbo, and it has nothing to do with exhaust being on the same side. 2 cylinders don't flow enough air consistently to spool a turbo well. If your theory was correct how would straight-six turbo cars work?

I hate the fact that my locks don't work from the outside. Some ******* rifled through my truck cause I don't lock my doors.

I hate today that when I got to the Post Office today the A/C compressor stopped working. Verified the R134 pressure and there is no leak because is full. When I got to work I turned off the truck, and turned back on 15 minutes later and the compressor started working again but I'm scared because that is a prelude of something big to broke on the A/C!!!
