sequential turbos is a great idea, get a smaller one for low rpm boost and a bigger one for high rpm, high boost.

makes no sense to do a twin turbo setup because it's an inline engine. twin turbos are more effective on V6 and V8 applications because you can use one turbo per manifold.

does anyone know of software that will allow for a sequential turbo application on the 1.8T...and would this be worth the $$$

I am not sure the 1.8t is the motor you would want to tt. It is a great motor but you will have to change all the internals to do this and handle the hp.

anything is possible with enough cash, but strapping two turbos to a 1.8 engine is only cool because then you could say to people "Yeah i got a twin turbo." Not because you'd have an efficient performance upgrade.
Not only would you have to design and build a manifold to support two turbochargers, rig up oil and coolant plumbing, tune the ECU to compensate for two turbos, maintain proper intake and exhaust control for both turbos at the same time or sequentially depending on whether or not you want a supra setup, but you'd have to find turbos that are small enough to actually fit in the engine bay, but which are also big enough to provide you with enough power to actually get anywhere.
If you'd like to do that, and you have the money to pay for it all, by all means be my guest. I think though, that you would rather upgrade the more efficient single turbo than try for a 1.8TT.
