Default Turbo quistion

Does a v-8 have to have a twin turbo? or can v-8's have just a turbo charger? I know nothing of Turbo and was just curious, cause i notice the price difference in turbo and twin turbo.

No, the idea behind twin turbo is to minimize the time of lag because two smaller turbos spool up faster than one larger turbo.

but rusmisel a single turbo can produce a lot more boost for quarter mile and sounds really nasty look at
a t 8.8 tubo you know that beotch will produce some boost depends on what setup your going for
a friend has a eclipse gst awd and has twent six on the street with thirty three or five on the track it is nasty
man from a SINGLE turbo another friend had a 300zx twin turbo pushing like thirteen but it spools really quick
to peak boost of a TWIN TURBO
