Let me for once ask a dumb question and expect intelligent answers from the experts
Is it conceivable to install the sequential twin-turbos off a 2JZ-GTE engine on a poor old 2LT and expect a fuller RPM range turbo performance? My interest in sequential twins set-up leads me to believe that the 2JZ-GTE use two CT20/6s or CT12s depending on models. When coupled with my desire to get rid of the 2LT on my CJ7 this seems to be a great way to try and roast the internals. Death by twin turbos should be a great samurai way to go for the old jap... but who knows the old man may even live to tell the tale!
Anyhow, my research is hitting a wall after the wikipedia details. Please help and share views on compatibility that you may have.
"The Mark IV Supra's twin turbos operated in sequential mode instead of the more common parallel mode. The sequential setup featured a pair of CT-12B turbos (for the JDM market, USDM market was CT20/CT20A with variations- some are ceramic- notorious, some are not. For UK market steel blades (CT-20/CT-20A)
Initially all of the exhaust is routed to the first turbine for reduced lag. This resulted in boost and enhanced torque as early as 1800 rpm. Approaching 3500 rpm, some of the exhaust is routed to the second turbine for a "pre-boost" mode, although none of the compressor output is used by the engine at this point. Approaching 4000 rpm, the second turbo's output is used to augment the first turbo's output. As opposed to the parallel mode, the sequential turbos provides quicker low RPM response and increased high RPM boost."
