Speedy, you are describing an optimum split plenum header. An optimum split plenum system has no secondaries; each primary terminates at the turbo inlet. VERY difficult design on a 930 but I have seen one with my own eyes. The wastegate setup is awkward to say the least.

I have a dual wastegate option for the split plenum systems we produced in the past and I plan to do the same thing with these headers. The dual origin single waste gate pipe is replaces by a short expension to each secondary elbow and the secondaries remain separated terminating at the turbo flange. This is not a perfect split plenum system but it is a nice compomise for 930 constraints.
