Twins have roughly 2x the failure points vs. a single and still rely on a bad wastegate design.
Twins of similar output cost less vs. a single top mount of similar output. However with the new speedtech bottom mount I think it tips in the single's favor for power output & price.
On a slightly related note - to the OP - if you're buddy just wants to be "fast" and beat your car and wants a 10 second car - dump this platform. Sorry, but LS is just too damn easy to make big power. You can take a Colorado, slap a junkyard 4.8 and a china turbo and run 9s at 150 on stock everything, and that's a truck. I'm excited to see Steven Clark's LS 135 setup finally run. I still think he spent too much money on things he didn't need to. I say run those 4.8 paper headgaskets and just send it!
