VGT turbo?

ok guys help me out here, i cant sleep at night cause i think about this to much but wat if i were to run a vgt turbo in a compound set up? would this work? lets say the small turbo being the vgt and have a large turbo on bottom. i think the spooling in a set up like this would be amazing, am i wrong? i think that u could have a very wide powerband also. Lets get some input on this im curious wat everyone has to say

Hey buddy im new to the forum, and im new to forums in general. So i dont mean to steal you thunder or anything, but i dont know know how to start a new thread or anything so i thought id ask my question in a thread that was related. maybe you know or someone else could help. Would i even beniefit from going with an after market turbo on a 6.7 liter cummins. i have no clue what a variable geometry turbo is. as of right now i have a tricked out 7.3 liter powerstroke that i love, but im in the market for a dodge as well. so i dont know if the turbo sysytem for 5.9's is the same stuff for 6.7's or what.......im so lost....HELP. lol.

a vgt turbo is basically a turbo that grows in size to put it simple i guess, and of course if ur looking for more power in a 6.7 cummins the stock turbo is going to be limited, and the 6.7s have the vgt and the 5.9s dont. and i also had a prety done up 7.3 sold it got my cummins and fell in love so get rid of that thing! haha hope i answered ur questions

got the pics fixed , yes they are all electronically control , but you can just take it out and use other ways that work just as well on a budget , until you buy the controller
