Twin Turbo

I've been looking at turbos lately and I've been really getting into them. I think it would be really cool to have a twin turbo set up for my 2014 V6, but I can't seem to find any kits. Is it even possible to put twin turbos in a V6? Or would it just be easier to get a bigger single turbo ?

You've got an option for a single turbo.
Twins would have to be fabricated.

i met a guy at a mustang meet who had fabricated two subaru STI turbos onto his 3.7 cyclone, he said he had to put HUGE injectors in it and his mpg was **** so it became his track car. he said he didnt treat his engine as a v6, he treated it as "two 3 cylinder engines bolted together" with about 12 pounds of boost from each turbo. it sounded CRAZY loud. anyway, he spent a ton of money on it. but he also drives a twin turbo v12 mercedes if that tells you anything about his income...
he also had widebody and said he was making about 600 horsepower.

i would personally never do this but you said you liked turbos so i thought id give you a laugh!

Twins on the 3.7 are pointless, unless you want instant torque from two small turbos.

Just go with a larger single and be done with it.

That's one feature I really liked about the 2008 BMW 335i I test drove. Two small turbos on the V6 and that ***** got up and hauled. 0 turbo lag and very quick spool.

But back on topic, to realistically go twin turbo with anything but tiny amounts of boost, there's a lot of prep work to do.

Twin turbo I6, not v. It also has a lot to do with the transmission gearing of that car to make up for the tiny turbos, but at any rate lol. I wouldn't bother with twins on this car, lots of R&D, and quite honestly not worth the gains over a good single.

I keep forgetting that was an inline. So used to saying V6 hahaha. Regardless, I would have bought that car on the spot were it not for the second thoughts of having a beamer with no warranty....

Awesome cars, they really are. However, my buddy works out of his garage and makes more money stocking them out than he does modding them... they just seem to fall apart after a while :/ oh well. Really had my heart set on a Z4 a few years ago.

I definitely believe it. A buddy bought an '09 M3 and it ran like a beast for the first 2-3 months and then it just started rapidly breaking this or that. Of course you can only work on them so much before you have to take it to the dealer.

Sorry for small thread jack!

I want to be some where around 500hp at the wheels. And like 550lbs of torque. Think that's reasonable ? I know I'm a bad driver, as in I'll speed and try to race someone on open roads. Just a adrenaline rush that I enjoy. But that'll be enough to play with Corvettes, SS, GTs, and destroy Hondas right ?

If you know you're a bad driver, I'd focus on getting that under control. That will get you killed if you don't respect the car.

That being said, at around 475 ish you'd have to start seriously considering forged internals, fuel system upgrades etc. It's not as simple as strapping on two turbos and go.

Yea that I understand. And not bad, as in I put others at risks. I understand the consequences completely.

As far as the turbos, I know it's not that easy. I have plans for a tune, and headers and all the good stuff! Just wanted an idea and opinions from people so I know what is what and which is best

This guy started a twin turbo build and looks like he got pretty far into it, but he hasn't updated the thread recently so I have no idea if he ever finished it.
