I've seen an old corolla gti done with it. Something like 400 bhp from it. The main problem seems to be the control over the two and the pipe work is like a maze. Would be savage though

there is a twin charge s15 on redline this month . never heard of one before this . it sounds ace tho no lag cause of the sc and no low power cause of the turbo . best of both worlds tho it dose sound next to impossible to do

would the turbo set up then run through the supercharger set up ????

I've seen a TB and TC tezza

The one I seen had a huge intercooler with 2 inlets from the tc and sc and only one outlet like a normal setup. Could also have two small intercoolers stacked one on the other like was on a twin turbo 300zx that was in a mag recently

Superchargers don't really need as much cooling as they don't produce anything like as much heat. Turbos, due to the fact they're powered by hot exhaust gasses, produce much higher temperatures where as superchargers the only heat really produced is by the compressing of the air...
