Well, I'm not even a "benchracer", but I think the whole point of having
twin-turbos was to lessen the lag that typifies traditional turbo
applications.  A single larger turbo would have to overcome more inertia and
therefore, have a longer spool-up time (before this car, I had a chipped
1993 urS4 which had a single turbo).

Design/engineering, as always, is a finely balanced game of trade-offs.

2001 S4, 6 spd SS ("Still Stock")
