    Resize it.

    Open it in MS Paint > Ctrl+W > resize the Horizontal and Vertical by the same amount. Even a little smaller will make it a much smaller file.

    a marketing gag, just to show that a boxer diesel is also possible.

    Would it be possible to fit it with two turbos, one for each side?

    There's been a factory twin turbo, so I see why not. The EJ20TT.

    both options exist AFAIK, BMW does it sequentially, PSA like a biturbo, and I think VW is also working along those lines.

    What would be interesting about the boxer diesel is probably the sound, but whether it will a similar audible drum as in the petrol versions remains to be seen, given the other inherent diesel noises.
