im working on the mounting set up atm trying to figure out whats the best way to do it. Either one on either side of the motor and relocate the power steering pump and run the pipes into a 'Y' then into a barrel w2a intercooler over the motor then into the t/b's. Or figure out a way for the 2 chargers to sit face to face and run off a single pully and run pipes to a huge pod filter then to the w2a cooler then to the t/b

Twin turbo it, I honestly can not see you getting 2 super chargers into the bay.
TT's are pretty rare on 4.0s, if you set it up similar to what the older skylines had, small turbo which spools early, then the larger one you wont really have any lag. But, like I've said before, lag isnt really an issue on 4.0s, they still have a bit of poke, which is why single turbo setups work so well.

For drivetrain use what 67rce suggested.

I hear what your saying and iv thought about it and if i cant physically fit them in the bay i will probably go that route. Like i said before im a lil strange and like trying off the wall things that make people scratch their heads. Thanks for the input though its all helpful to me

Using twin throttle bodys requires different air intakes, lengths in pipes,ect if u wanna get equal power to both throtle bodys they need to be in balance(harmonised)

nah, you don't 'tune' superchargers, and you don't need to 'harmonise' throttle bodies in this application.
