I thought the n54 was desirable due to the fact it had two seperate turbos. I do not see what 1 will be able to do that 2 (even if smaller) cannot do?

Also if you want gobs of power and want a big single turbo, won't that create great amounts of lag?
I don't get it either. What's the big deal about single turbo ?
