Can you twin turbo a V8?

Twin-turbo systems are more efficient turbocharger setups for engines with two cylinder banks, such as V6 or V8 engines. As each bank of a V-configured engine has its own cylinder head, a twin-turbo system can be used to bolt a turbocharger to each of the engine’s exhaust outlets.
