dank has it. PSI is pounds per square inch. Same way tires are filled. It is how compressed the air gets. more air = more power. lastly turbo lag is the time it takes for a turbo to spool(spin) and make decent power. Say ur turbo fully spools at 4000rpms. so say ur in second and u are at 4500 and u shift to 3rd. when the revs drop below 4000 u will be experienceing turbo lag.

Twin turbos are usually for cars that have 2 exhaust manifolds (headers) like V6 or V8 because it's just easier to make the pipings. A twin turbo usually have less lag, esp when it's sequential when one turbo is always on and the other one kicks in at a predetermined RPM, it eliminates lag.

There's also two types of setups for a twin-turbo, parallel and sequential. An example of a sequential setup is the 3rd Gen RX-7. An example of a parallel setup would be the 300ZX TT.
