Here's a verse:

Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
Why are you yelling?
We don't get you.

This is by far 1 of the best breakdowns on single and twin turbo pros vs cons. I also learned a few things about heat transfer and placement of turbos. Thanks for taking the time out to do this very good read.

Read this a second time and realize that the BP kit doesn't have such a huge boost threshold as mentioned here.

Nope. The boost threshold of a twin-scroll is really close to that of a TT setup. I make positive pressure below 2,500rpms. Turbo lag is almost non-existent too with my ball bearing setup.

Post is very informative but unfortunately is geared more towards favoring twin turbos. Single turbo is great too if designed correctly.

There is one definitive fact - The single turbo kit that is shipping is always superior to the twin turbo kit that isn't.

Agreed. My BP kit dominates the GTM kits I've seen on my tuners dyno.

One thing that is always left out of the discussion is that a single turbo will always make more low end torque and that's where it really matters. But I don't have to tell you that, we bought the same kit.

Can't wait for the BP kits to be built. I've read and researched up and down this forum and there's nothing bad that can be said about it.
