It's literally two turbos, and can be setup a number of ways..

Theres a guy who build one on HMT, but it looks like complete ***. His is set up sequentially which means he's basically using one tiny turbo to help spool and reduce lag on a big fat *** turbo.

Twin turbo's is just that, two turbo's.

They can be done two ways. Individual or sequential. Individual on a 4 cylinder is tough, it's more common with V engines because you have two seperate exhaust outlets for turbo's to spool off of. Basically they combine the charge piping, resulting in a fast and powerful spool time. Sequential is a bit different, you have one small turbo and one large turbo. The small one starts spooling early and helps spool the larger one, which then more or less takes over. Unfortunately you still get restriction because the exhaust is still going through the smaller turbo. On Civic's they're a mess, not really worth your while either way.

T9, 14B, Tdohblahblahblahblah, they're just "names" I guess you could say of turbo's. The most common ones you're going to see are 14B which comes with the smaller Greddy kit, T25 which is stock on most DSMs and 240s, 16G which is the EVO turbo, T3s which are found on Saabs, Mercedes, etc (varying sizes), and T3/T4s which is a T3 exhaust housing mated with a T4 series compressor housing allowing for the faster spool and overall larger volume of air that they can move.

Backfires generally occur when someone routes their BOV back into their charge piping. When the person lets off the gas the car goes extremely rich for a split second, thus causing the car to throw fuel out of the exhaust valves and down through the exhaust where it ignites and goes boom! The other reason would be similar, they're just running really rich and when they let off the excess fuel ignites in the exhaust system. Not really a big deal, but it looks cool!

Haha, my car backfires sometimes, it used to do it a lot when I was open DP.

Honestly dude, a year ago I didn't know **** about anything. Read some books, read some websites, search through the archives of as many honda forums as you can find, and never be afraid to ask questions to the guys who do this **** day in and day out.
