If you go with 2 BIG turbos.... they will lag more than a properly sized single turbo. And if you go 2 SMALL turbos... then you can run into heating issues as the turbos will produce too much heat.

Turbos get very hot too, so if you have two of them... it will be hotter...

And it all comes down to intercooler sizing and pipe sizing as well.

For what he is looking for, a single would be perfect. it will keep normal drivability civil, wont hurt gas milage too much, and when he needs it... the monster will be ready.

If he wants over 700whp then yes i would say twins would be better as its easier to get more air flow at that point because the single turbo needed to match that would be HUGE.

That's all kind of true but missing the biggest point. The only single kit available for the Camaro has 10ft. of exhaust piping before the turbo. The problem with kits like that or rear mounts is you've lost a lot of the exhaust's energy by the time it gets to the turbo. So to get the turbo to spool up reasonably you have to go with a smaller turbo. Then that smaller turbo is limited on total power production. It's a catch 22. The U-turn single kit on the market today is both laggy and limited to around 700whp. It's more laggy than the 1100whp twins I have on my car. I really don't like superchargers but I'd get a Whipple or ECS kit before a U-turn single.
Be vewy vewy quiet, I'm hunting GT500's.
