The performance diesel industry was revolutionized when two turbos began to be used on diesel trucks. The use of additional turbos gives the driver the ability to burn more fuel and therefore generate more power. The power that a diesel engine makes is directly related to how much fuel it can burn. Thus when the burning ability increases, so does the potential power output. For the performance minded consumer, this is a necessity.
More fuel means more power, but it also means more heat. As the diesel fuel is burned, the heat generated is typically offset by the turbocharger as it forces cooler air through the intake and into the combustion chamber. When a stock turbo has exceeded its cooling ability, additional cooling is needed.
