Do it! I would have already redone this in stainless if I wasn't so lazy about it, and lacking in welding skills and equipment.


The power band on this setup is pretty sweet too. I can make 45 psi from ~5,000-10,000 rpm, which I definitely wouldn't be able to do with a 2 liter and a single big turbo. I hit ~10 psi at 3000 rpm. What's interesting is that leaving at 5800 rpm on a fuel cut 2 step the big turbo actually makes zero boost. Any time fuel cut engages the big turbo shuts off. Most likely due to losing the exhaust gas energy that comes with that fuel. The small turbo stays up at 30 psi. As soon as I release the trans brake/2 step, the big turbo shoots straight up to full boost. It looks pretty funny in the logs.

Maybe, we'll see. I am pretty sure I'm going to put an EVO motor and tranny first though, just need to find the time. One of PTE's 5857's feeding a billet 76mm sounds freaking sweet though.

What if a guy wanted a 1000-1200 hp 400 inch V8 and only needed 15-18 psi but wanted
it feel like a roots blower could it be possible with a compound setup?

It seems to me that this done for high boost pressure applications,
can it be done for fast spool and lower boost?

I believe 1000-1200hp with a 400incher at 18psi is possible with a single turbo provided a decent head/cam setup, but compounding will allow an earlier spool and could be made more efficient.

Sure, size the big turbo for the 1200 hp and size the small turbo based on what rpm you want it to spool. Then divy up the PRs accordingly.

On diesels it's done for high boost, but even at 45 psi I'm only at medium boost for a gas motor. I do it for the exact reason you mention, fast spool. Or more accurately, low rpm spool.

Great! I have 2 T3/T4’s 60-1 x stage 5 with .82 AR.
They worked good on my mild 355 but I fear they’re a bit on the small
side for the new motor.

But a 91-101 would more in line for it.

It would be a blast to drive with the spool of the T3/T4’s and the top end flow
of 101.

Do you control your manifold psi with the gate controlling the big turbo
or is it a combination of the two gates?

There are a few ways you can control boost. What I think is working well is running the big turbo just regulating it's output pressure. The small turbo has manifold pressure to the side port, and add it's inlet pressure (=big turbo outlet pressure) to the top port. For example, I've got a 13 psi spring in the big turbo's gate, and a 28 psi spring in the small turbo's gate. The small turbo comes up and makes 28 psi, and then the big turbo starts to make boost and as it comes up it's output pressure is added to the small turbo's spring rate via the top port. Total boost ends up at 41 psi. It's additive in this configuration. What's nice is that the small turbo is never really asked to make more than 28 psi. As manifold pressure comes up to 41 psi, the small turbo's pressure ratio actually goes down. Then I just put an MBC on the big turbo and add say 4 psi to it to get up to 45 psi, etc. The trick is all in getting the pressure ratios where you want them.

you have stolen my consept ! (not 100% reddy yeat, in the dyno)

fun to se you try this system to.

sorry my spelling is bad (from sweden)

if you like i can show som pic on my engine?

have you run the engine onley on the smal turbo ? dos it spool faster or slower?

Nice! I would definitely like to see some pics of your setup. I ran it on the small turbo with the big turbo not install, and installed. Doing time to rpm tests there was no change, showing no measureable decrease in small turbo spool due to the big turbo.



I should also clarify something from my last post. I mentioned a 28 lb spring in the secondary WG. Of course, with the Tial V44, there is no such spring. I actually have 2 wastegates on the small turbo, each with a 19 lb spring. For some reason I've yet to determine, it provides 26-28 psi boost. It's not boost creep, since it's flat across the whole pull and does not increase with rpm. I made up a graph to show this, and it includes boost from both turbos, pressure ratios, etc. The vertical yellow line on the left is where I released the transbrake, the vertical white line is the marker/cursor.

http://www.posracing.net/files/Compound_Turbo_graph.JPG

The image conversion hosed the quality, but it's still readable. Hopefully that helps to illustrate some points about how the setup works. Keep in mind the primary turbo is the big one and the secondary turbo is the small one. Some points of interest on the graph:

-Total boost and the two individual boost pressures add up (if they're off slightly it's due to filtering).
-Pressure ratios are multiplied to equal total PR.
-You can see that the big turbo makes no boost until I release the transbrake and the 2 step that goes with it. It ramps in over about a second.
-As the big turbo comes up, the small tubo stays flat (I needed to add a second WG to avoid creep here), but it's PR goes down. Its PR is highest when it's doing all of the work.

Thanks for your time.

If your where to turn the boost up or down witch
gate would you do this with?

Spring pressure indicates pressure on the valve. Not intake manifold pressure. Your back pressure is low, that's a good thing.

I only run a boost controller on the big turbo in this configuration, so I adjust boost with the big turbo. The secondary turbo's boost is based on the spring pressure plus its inlet pressure.

So now I am confused. How do you control shaft speed on the large turbo? It doesn't look like you have a wastegate mounted between the two.

I've just never seen a case where this has happened on a DSM though. It's still just a regular 50 trim with a T31 .82 housing at ~28 psi. I'll have to think more about this, I've been lazy about figuring this one out.
