You know, 350z headers mated to our flanges work nicely, they line up pretty much dead on. Kind of a neat trick I'm using in mine, works great plus it let's u free up those ips headers for resale

I don't think I have a seen the proof of this. There have been what...a handful of people to attempt singles and actually give it a fighting chance and then there are hundreds of cars that have twin setups that Matt or someone else already dialed in. The success is behind the creator, not twins vs singles. I would also note that some of the nastiest twin setups are basically a single setup with 2 turbos (running the turbos over the transmission) so blaming exhaust length is invalid. We do have a lot of people who don't pick the right parts for their setup/goals. Easier when someone else has it figured out for you.

I agree that a single can perform as well as twins if set up properly. Well the problem is that is so much more work to fab up a single turbo, than to bolt on a set of pre made twin manifolds. The only production single set up (IPS) requires the removal of a/c.

And it is on a road racing car where the supposed "huge" downside of a single turbo would be a problem. Plus your turbo is quite large. Drag racers not able to use a single turbo have a driving problem. Some people do have an obsession with racing in the wrong gear though... "I put 3 car lengths on him from 2000 to 3000 rpms!"

Road course is actually the single most ideal application for a single turbo imo. What turbo are you running now Erron? 4094R?
