In one exemplary embodiment of the invention, a housing for an internal combustion engine includes a manifold section configured to receive an exhaust gas flow from cylinders of the internal combustion engine and a turbine section, wherein the turbine section and manifold section are a single member. Further, the housing includes a volute chamber within the turbine section configured to direct the exhaust gas flow to a turbine wheel disposed about a turbine axis and a circumferential septum positioned inside the volute chamber to separate two chambers that are substantially nested about the turbine wheel.
