I heard the 2015 kia forte koup and 5 sx uses a twin scroll turbo, is that true ? And is a twin scroll turbo and a twin turbo the same thing ?
Now that's a monster lol!Twin turbo 4 cylinder, look at subaru.....
OK then how about doing a twin twin scroll turbo setup on our little 1.6L. Each cylinder would have it's own chamber to the turbine but to achieve the scavenging effect on the right cylinder it would be a interesting header.I wonder how a twin turbo setup would do if each were dedicated to two cylinders.
If you look at it like that I can definitely see how you could confuse twin-scroll with twin-turbo.
Man imagine trying to fit all that back there! Let alone build a jungle of pipe to hook it all up lolOK then how about doing a twin twin scroll turbo setup on our little 1.6L.

Exactly my thinking!Moral of the story is.... The turbo in our cars is a twin-scroll and we do not have a twin turbo set up.
That video was like better than porn.Twin turbo on a 4 cylinder engine would be a little odd. ONE turbo charger is generally used PER bank of exhaust cylinders. So Poppolino and Forte 5 you have some nomenclature confusion. Schizorrazgriz is quite close. The set up on these engines is really ideal. The spinning of the turbo "shaft" on the Kia set up (driven by exhaust) has, on the intake side, another impeller (thus twin scroll) that helps pull in intake air at a higher velocity and density (terms are LOOSELY defined). This is what an engine always want - LOTS of air.
I just sold my very thrusty SRT4 ACR - and can't wait to get a 2016 SX. I'll contribute mightily to the suspension, brakes and intake arena on this forum
