Bi-Turbo= 2 Turbos

Usually a bi-turbo has 2 different sized turbos. They use a smaller turbo that will spool faster at low speed and then they have a larger turbo to pick up when the smaller turbo runs out of speed.

The reason some cars have biturbos is to reduce turbo lag but not sacrifice top end power.

I'd have to disagree. Biturbo is just a more european way of saying twin turbo. I am 95% sure this R32 has two identical turbos operating in parallel. Most likely an HGP (or HPA in North America) twin turbo kit. There just isn't room in the R32 engine bay to easily plumb a sequential turbo setup.

But yes, a sequential turbo setup would have an awesome powerband, just is a pain in the ass to set up.
