twin turbo ?

I was looking at the Hellion twin turbo system for my 01 GT on AM and saw that it said it was compatible with a roots style supercharger, would this turbo system also work with a twin screw supercharger?

Yes, but you're gonna have one hell of a headache tuning it.

I've never seen a car have both, I've always wondered if it was possible tho. Would it be a good idea? I realize id have to build my engine to handle the power.

It's pretty pointless to do, considering any amount of power you push doing that you could reach the exact same with just the twin turbo setup. It's a nightmare to tune because you have to dial in both turbos and then dial in the supercharger on top of that. Youtube or google the Ronin Lotus Excige.

I want my horsepower on the bottom end, which y i was thinking supercharge, but if the turbo gave me my power soon enough, i might just get the twin turbo. Which would b better?

Supercharger would be less of a PITA to tune

Sounds like a supercharger is what you want. Have you ridden in a car with a turbo before?

I have, it's not instantaneous, but when you step on it, you will feel it, big time

I've never rode in a turbocharged car, so when do you feel it?

A stock 06 WRX starts spooling at about 2500 but you don't feel it kick in until 3000 or so. My buddies Evo 8 has an upgraded turbo and it doesn't start spooling until 3000 and doesn't really pull until 3500. It's all based upon how big your turbo is. The bigger it is, the longer it takes to spool up.

You could have a larger turbo w/ a smaller, faster spooling turbo

Pretty small for a v8. That would be almost instant spool from when you hit the gas. Spool time also correlates to displacement... The bigger the motor, the faster the spool!

But not that it's too small. That'd be a perfect turbo for street driving

So do you think the twin turbo should be my choice?

If you're going for low end gains I'd stick with a supercharger, probably a twin screw

I go twins honestly. A lot of mustangs have superchargers but twins is a meaner sound that will command a lot of attention!
