Post Twinturbo for impreza 2.5 rs?

Is there twinturbos available for 2.5 rs? What about other imprezas? It's sais that the larger turbo, the more power and the longer lag. What about twin models does they have a benefit of a large air flow with a small lag? Can twin turbos be adjusted to separate independent settings?

I know that some company has made one but I don't think it's in production yet.

Thanks.Pretty expenisve one that on amr =) but what about the lag? Does anyone have a thought about those ones having a smaller lag than single turbos with the same capasity?

Should have full boost 10psi @ 2300.00 RPMs so there should not be to much lag.

I'm in the process of building up a 2.0 (Jap spec) with twin T-3s. According to my turbo guru this should have about 250 at the wheels easily. But its not a kit.

So has anyone gotten a twin turbokit from AMR and had it installed yet? I figured someone would have it by now.

It can easily be done. It will have to be custom made, ofcourse.
I can build you one but the price would be around $4500-5000.
We are building a race one but I doubt you would want a setup like that. It requires the brake master cylinder, stock pedals, etc to be removed. It will be capable of 500+ HP easily, with instant boost thanks to ball bearing turbos.
I am talking to the guys over there at INNOVATIVE TURBO SYSTEMS to figure out which turbos to use. You should check them out. These guys are very knowledgeble and are pusing the envelope on the turbo technology.
They left Turbonetics and opened up their own company, where they can improve the currently available turbos and build much better ones. Thhey were not given the oportunity to do so before, that's why they left. You can call them at 805 526 5400, or go to www.innovativeturbo.com. I dont think their web site is up and running yet though. They are a great bunch of guys. You will see their name pup up everywhere in the near future, weather it be dragracing, track racing, land speed racing, etc. They did an average pass of 227MPH at the salt flats not too long ago with a twin turboed 69 Vette.

and where will all these compenents be? Wouldn't they still have to be in roughly the same general location?

Yeah sure why not.
You can replace all that with a race pedal- box setup. You will not have power brakes anymore but how many race cars do?

Cool

I think that I heard that they will place all of that stuff in the trunk, right next to your monkey.
