Are they close in size? I think problems may arise if there is a big size difference, you could easily push one out of its efficiency range. It'd be interesting to see a dyno session where you could block off one of your atmosphere turbos. Then add the other turbo and see what happens.

Personally, I'd be prepared to make the change to two identical atmospheres, but why not give it a shot.

That's how I see it. I'm building the setup so having to modify it won't be that big of a deal.

Why not use the smallest one and the biggest one and not use the middle one and sell it for other parts? Do a normal compound setup. Not 2 atmospheric and one high pressure... or if they are far enough apart in size then why not compound them all? A Low a mid and a high pressure turbo.

I did that with my red truck. The setup was nice but I'm not one to do the same thing twice. Uniqueness with functionality is what I'm after.
