with proper boost level and sufficient tune.. twin turbos are fine for the street...it'll all depend on your core build if it's too much for the street......you could have a 300 hp twin turbo set up or a 600 hp twin set up.. the higher you go the tougher it'll be to use all those 600 ponies on the street safely

ive never messed with turbos before, i guess to add on to my question, do you have to tune your car a totally different way if you have turbos?

you'll need an adequate fuel system and have to have spark advance set correctly and have a boost retard set up.....basically you need to determine what boost level you want to run thenwe can answer the rest of your questions......but you'll need to have something to monitior a/f and be aware that on a boosted car detonation is it's worst enemy..which is what you'll be tuning to avoid
