On a relatively small displacement engine a twin-turbo setup is never better, especaly when it's an inline engine. A single-turbo setup will yield far more power and will be more efficient.

It's better in a way, not in all... you can get more power, but also more lag. smaller twin turbos have a better response and you can also achieve massive power, but of course it's more expensive, check out these cars by the way.:thumb:

3 liters of displacement isn't big.

There isn't much power to be had when utilizing small turbo's. 20 psi on two small turbo's won't yield the same HP as a single larger turbo at 20 psi. Its all about how much CFM's a turbo-charger can produce not PSI. Small turbo's fall right on their face at higher rpm's because they run out of their efficiency range. They become nothing more than blow dryer's pushing nothing but hot air. a small twin-turbo setup won't be more efficient nor will it yield any more power than a properly sized single turbo.

BTW i'm only referring to low displacement in-line engines not V engines.

lol remember t hat the 2jz engine is the same engine that the infamous TWIN Turbo Toyota Supra uses ... so hell yeah the twin turbo set up would be the best IF you are looking for over all performance.. now if you go single turbo set up remember that you are going to have turbo lag... something that if you race you wont want to have... 3.0L ENGINE IS DEFINATELY PLENTY.. some people of course prefer the 5.0L/4.6L Engines (Domestic) because of course they believe in the equation/saying there is no replacement for displacement.. not always true..

but its always YOUR call since it is YOUR money..

one other thing is , you have an advantage to most other cars.. due to the fact that IT IS an in-line engine vs a "V" style/configuration Engine... remember that reliability might be an issue as well... just try to keep that in mind...
