i'm thinking about making up a intake manifold for a turbo engine on a eb and was thinking about using 2 throttle bodies, so it would be 3in from cooler up to a Y into 2 3in throttle bodies would this be a advantage for a forced induction engine? would it also be hard to tune and stuff?

i find it hard to believe these r a good advantage for any engine really the stats speak for themselves. Unless u have a LOT of power and trying to run 7's down the 1/4 imo they arent worth the time, money or effort

What is the point..?
One 3" pipe feeding two 3" throttle bodies... WTF?
The intercooler would pose more of a restriction than the throttle body to start with.
