hey...im relatively new to supras and was very interested in purchasing one to work on. i dont know a whole lot about them but was wondering which set up would yield the best long term performance, single or twin. im not looking for really serious racing, just for fun. any input would be great. thanx

if you get 2 small good sized turbos it would be a very quick spool and make as much power as a single turbo, but it will be most more costly. So single turbo is the best way to go.

I'm almost sure that this question is not in regards to aftermarket turbos... I think OP may be confused with Supras in general. Supras either only came in TT or NA. I've had a lot of people get confused with this idea, "why do you only have one turbo, the TT's are better." I think there is just some misinformation.

twin turbo all the way......I prefer a nice constant power band across the RPM then a sudden surge of power at a curtain RPM....

Maybe you mean "sequential twin turbo all the way" since any other parallel twin turbo setup has about the same powerband as a single of the same airflow capability

I swear........

based on what sound science? Everything in motors ALWAYS comes at a price.

Nothing to include power band broadening comes for free, there is always a price to pay.

Single a whole lot less parts to deal with and there is just something about a big single setting in my engine bay. On the other hand the new boost logic setup presents me with something else to think about.

been debating both ways myself and the single just seems to be better and more proven with less headache
