Difference between sequential and non- sequential turbos

As you can tell from my sig I dont own a 7 - I am curious as to what the difference is (in terms of power gains) between the sequential and non-sequential turbos on fd's.
Thanks in advance,
Scott

twins are more complicated and complexe, but spool quicker. Singles will result in less headaches and (as far as I know) single turbo FD's have the highest dyno numbers, higher than any sequential (although twins are nice). It really depends on your driving and what you want, both are great choices- just don't go NA!

im drunk so I feel chatty....
only go non seq if your having constant problems or mainly just dont wanna deal with it....I really wish I had the time to have kept my car seq but there was a slew of other problems which needed more of my time so I choose to simplfy the turbo system...

the reason I say "only go non seq if your having constant problems" is I hate seeing people getting fustrated with boost problems and selling thier car...

the difference is......, drum roll please....
seq.: great if it works, makes you manic if it doesn't
non-seq.: some lag, but you never want to poke your eyes out with a blunt object like you do w/non-seq sometimes.

i believe they would make the same peak power, but seq. would have a flatter power curve and non-seq. would not have a power dip around 4500rpm.
