just pondering this. is it possible to add a supercharger or another turbo on top of the ECU upgrade

ummmm....wow, i don't even know what to say. so you're suggesting to add another turbo to the system, or a supercharger. :-?

go out and get this book.
"Maximum Boost": Designing, Testing, and Installing Turbocharger Systems'
by: Corky Bell
you should be able to find it at your local book store.
i think you'll find answers there, and learn how these things actually work.

personally i dont think there is a real point to adding a super/turbocharger to the system until you optimize the current system, unless you just want to dump wasted money into the car.

Lancia Delta Integrales had a supercharger/turbocharger combination....it had a shared pressure chamber and a sophisticated vacuum pressure system to ensure that low rpm boost from the supercharger and high rpm boost from the turbo were seamless. Needless to say, this system is a nightmare to develop with out big resources and lots of good engineering. A Twin turbo setup just doesn't make sense from a volumetric efficiency standpoint for a 2.0 L I4. Tune what you got buddy.

just wondering if it was possible. my technical and engineering backgrounds goes back to forcing the rectangle block into the triangle slot.
