    ok, i gotta ?, does the smaller turbo actually spool up the larger turbo, or does it spool up the egine enough to spool up the bigger motor?

    It spools up and gets the air in and exhaust out flowing enough to spool the larger turbo when it transitions over and the pre-spool actuator opens and activates the second turbo.

    translation, it boosts low to help the engine get up to have the larger turbo kick in

    thanks. a buddy of mine tried to tell me that the smaller turbo moves the air in a closed system that spools up the larger turbo. that just didnt seem to make sense to me. i just wanted to clear that up.

    so am I understanding that the sequential turbo setup doesn't eliminate turbo lag, but it makes for a sort of distribution of the turbo lag to make it more tolerant?

    No.... there isn't any turbo lag because the primary, smaller turbo, spools up quickly to get things going.
