Twin turbo questions??

When running twin turbos do you need to run two boost gages and two EGT gages??

No on the two boost gauges. One single boost gauge referenced from a point as close to the T/B.

You can run two separate EGT gauges to keep tabs on temps. IMO not necessary but it would possibly help tell you if there is a oil restriction (or water if water cooled) if one turbo was getting hotter than the other.


They say what goes up must come down but I ain't reached my cruising altitude.
Take a look at what I did but can you imagine what I'm about to do.

Thats not what EGT gauges are used for.
Exhaust Gas Temp is used to adjust mixture in some turbo applications.

We dont use EGT's for mixture. We use WideBand O2 sensors.

It can be nice to know if one bank is rich or lean, but not necessary.
One is plenty for average set-up
