It's old and inefficient. You're better off grabbing two turbos off of a Turbo Coupe or something newer. Those turbos were from back in the day when there wasn't much science put into the design of turbos and what the end use would be.

Take a look at the horsepower rating of the 6 cylinder, 2800cc turbo Nissan 280, and compare it to the smaller, 2-slug disadvantaged, 2300cc Turbo Coupe from 8 years later and you will see the horsepower output is probably greater on the Turbo Coupe.
