Why a triple-turbo setup? Compared to a standard compound-turbo setup, the triples use two smaller turbos that spool up quicker to feed the factory high-pressure turbo, which results in them coming on twice as fast. It’s very efficient using expelled heat to drive the turbo. So the number one reason for triple turbos is spoolability. The system is a bit more complicated and costs a bit more, but the results can be worth it. This beast gives 500 HP and an amazing 1,000 lb-ft of torque. Check it out!
