Aircraft had both turbo and superchager in WWII, and I think some Detroits
did too.
I'm not sure what he point would be on a 4cyl, although I don't know much
more than turbo basics

There are many different types of twin-turbo setups.

One way that's peaked my interest is utilizing the stock TD04 as my 'first turbo' that when it's spun up, will help move the larger wheel in the 'second turbo'. Twin turbo's on such a small engine will be hard to move, but anything can be done.

It is cool as hell however to say you've got a twin-turbo PT!

PT's/Neons use old technology; cast iron blocks, they are capable of extreme
outputs. Some guys mill the mains and use a billet steel reinforcement bar
over the remaining cast iron, but this is in beyond realty output category.

I imagine block could/would be o-ringed as is done with any extreme pressure
engine.

Some 'newer' engines are aluminum, they require reinforcement and/or
sleeving, even just for moderate / high outputs.

Again, not a turbo expert, just what I've seen dudes doing.

The 2.0 has a very rigid crank due to it's short stroke.
