For true twins yes. For compounds, which are much more efficient and will create more boost, no.

Agreed. In a compound set up the entire system only flows as much as the big turbo flows by itself. So you wouldn't get any more flow if you tried to stage two turbos of the same size.

In compound setups, Little turbo feeds into the inlet of the big turbo, on just twins, they boost seperately of each other.

In a twin turbo setup each turbo runs one bank on the engine. The left exhaust feeds the left turbo which supplies air to the left bank of the engine. In a compound setup the exhaust from both manifolds goes to one turbo, and then into the next. Likewise, boost from one turbo feeds into the next.

With compound turbos you can run very large turbos to take advantage of the increased air flow from a large turbo but still retain very good spool-up characteristics. BBunting at BWD has several compound options for the 7.3 and I believe that Elite Diesel may also.
