from a technical stand point Bi-turbo is when a car has 1 turbo to each bank of the engine (boxers, and V engines) where as Twin is for straight engines where 2 turbos are back to back 1 small 1 large. (MKV twin turbo Supras) all that being said many people will call bi-turbo motors twin turbo motors simple cause its more common.
