Re: Twin-turbo Skyline engine in an NSX....

although i basically agree with the rest of your post, in this part, you arent correct. Im not going to argue the technicalities of it; however, space confinements aside, this has been done already. The Tommy Kaira ZZII uses an RB26 with upgraded turbos in an MR setup that still uses the AWD capability of the RB26. I cant say for sure if the tranny is the same, but it has been done nonetheless...
