Everyone one had their fun I do not see what's wrong with setting the dude straight and lending him a better idea. Stupid questions are stupid but no one is required to waste their time responding like a dick either. Personally I'd rather try to help the dude if I am going to waste my time on it.

1. The Toyota is a way bigger engine. Manufacturers install correctly sized turbos for general use.
2. Know body makes a manifold or downpipe for your application, so figure about 1,500 for a good one fabbed by someone who knows what they are doing.
3. Now you have TWO massive glowing heaters, under the hood of a car that is already cooling deficient.
4. You don't sound turbo savy. This would be almost destined for failure. Never finish, runs like ****, blown up, catch fire etc.

5. It's a bad idea. How abou that. Not a question, a statement.

Could you imagine plumbing 4 water lines and four oil lines? There would be so little room, You would have to work on the car with chop sticks.

Thanks everyone for the help. Just wondering cause I am NOT turbo savvy... Never claimed to be and just asked a question. No need to be sarcastic or rude even if it's something you guys know that I DONT.
