Well I know how it said 1.5 - 2.2L but then it said twin charging part and that'* what made me think.

Why yes and no?

Yes if you use them in a TT setup, no if you don't. It will be fairly hard to fit 2 turbos under the hood without extensive work.

well where you put them may be a problem but each turbo would work off of the manifold on either side

That looks lik a turbo from a passat/audi 1.8L motor.

It'* very small for our application, and you will outflow the efficiency range of that turbo very quickly (like just off idle)

How much do you know about turboing a car? If you don't know about efficiency ranges, and sizing a turbo to a motor, then I would suggest doing more research first. Everyone I know suggests this book: Maximum Boost

There are others out there, but that is a good one to start with.

Does it talk about twin charging at all?

I meant the book

I would really like to know if I could use this with my car and how to do it and stuff so I want to know if the book has alot of info on twincharging or if it even touches on the subject.
I don't really want to read on a book that has nothing to do with the specific idea I'm looking for.

Does anyone know of any sites that have twinturbo twincharging setups or anything with a 3800?
