Shouldn't this be in the engine section?

If you have a 4 cyl, a twin turbo would be completely useless other than being able to say you have a twin turbo ranger. You will have a bigger bang for your buck with a single turbo or you are going to do an engine swap...

More than you want to think about... lol
I am in the process of modding my 2008 for a turbo setup
I'm running a single t3/t4 with a 42mm ext wastegate with 6psi spring
- fuel / ignition mapping (fmec and pcm programming)
- oil feed setup for turbo
- obvious exhaust routing
- intercooled?
- internal or external wastegate?
- will your internals handle even 5psi? mileage?
- will your intake manifold take boost vs baro / vacuum?
- will your maf read properly?
etc... etc... etc...

----------

Oh sorry I misread... Helpful tip - don't do it
I would change my mind but I'm close to $3500.00 deep in this project already

FMIC refers to front mount inter cooler.

"Intercooler?" posted below this does not make sense

Oops
Meant FMEC - fuel management and engine control (pcm piggyback)
I corrected it

Oh - those kind of suck. I like having an ECU that can adjust pulsewidth at my whim. You would be foolish to do this without major fuel system upgrades.

fmec would techinically be part of your ecu - like i said (piggyback)
Most of these newer vehicles would be a complete nightmare to run full stand-alone. OBD1 on the other hand is remarkably easy to run a stand-alone in comparison.
And unless you are running that laptop all the time good luck being able to "adjust pulse width at your whym". Sounds like you would prefer a programmable "chip" installed in your pcm / ecu - which would make it much harder to perform these adjustments you speak of... Install a wide-band o2 sensor and a high end pcm/ecu controller you'd have plenty of adjustments at your disposal. The factory fuel system on the 2000+ sohc 4.0 has plenty of flow and the injectors can provide more than enough fuel for mid cfm 5-8 psi boost

Do you know what I do for a living?

Stand alone is easy if you have a baseline starter map and a wire harness that gets you into the stock wiring. Logging is easy on nearly every wideband with 5 volt ouput and any software that will tell you which load cells you are stepping on. 5-8 psi of boost ='s different on one compressor is different than another compressor. Like saying "how high is up". I still don't understand why anyone would want to run that close to the edge of running out of fuel.
