    Ah, I reckon twin rear mounts are fatally flawed. Twice as many pipes taking volume from front to rear, temperature lost on the rearward journey due to a much larger external surface area of two pipes Vs. one and then too much volume to be manipulated on the forward pass.

    I believe the whole concept behind Rear Mount was to reduce hassle and cost, by going to 2 turbos you've just doubled the hassle and cost of doing the cheap and easy installation.
    For the same cross sectional area and wall thickness two tubes will be ~40% heavier than one too. I would assume that two smaller turbos would carry a similar mass penalty over one big one too. If packaging and ground clearance is a problem two of everything might be the only way to go though.

    I don't like the idea of rear mount turbos at all, but if packaging dictates it I suppose a rear mount turbo is better than no turbo.

        Yep about 15 years. Motivation has stalled but it's so close. I'm trying to get him to finish the last hurdle so he can drive it

            I used turbowerx pumps from the USA, the smaller pump for pressure feed and the bigger pump for oil scavenge

              Yes it was bent to give more clearance


                Comp turbos make an oil less turbo. Have no idea if they are any good, but would simplify a rear mount setup
