Ive heard a lot of people talking about having a supercharger and a turbo all in one car. Does this actually exist? How is it possible? Im not planning nor looking at doing this I was just curious since Ive heard many people talk about it. Im sure it would be very expensive and there are other better things to look at.

They use it to improve low end response before the large turbochargers begin to boost.

If having that much more power in a certain engine speed is important to you, I'd say do it. But in general for people like us, no.

How much boost would both together put out?

that is all subjective. If you dont have strong internals like the skyline engine, i doubt that the engine would be able to hold the stress for long. I would say low boost for both applications.

completely pointless. first off, it's called twincharging. u generally feed the turbo into the supercharger. it's pointless because u could properly tune a turbo for cheaper, just use a small and large turbo in sequence.

here's a link for a corolla twincharge ( i used to drive a corolla, and wanted to do it until i realized how pointless it was)

btw, HKS used to sell a twincharge kit for a corolla, but tehy quit production, so this is the hard way to do it. if u can find a kit, it'd be a little easier, not having to piece everything together.
