Default Core Stacking

My car amp is working out good sofar except the PSU.
I've got one core working on its own but I've found that parralelling it with another exactly the same doesn't quite work to good. Probly a homemade issue (to much voltage difference is my guess)
This leads me to stacking the two core on top of each other.
Someone surgested this in another thread so I thought I'd follow it up.
Will I lose much (if any) power output of the two transformers(vs in seperate)?
Will I have to experiment all over again to find how many primary turns I need?

If anyone wants to highlight any good points be my guest
Thanks

This would double the AL value approximately. I.e. you would end up with approx 30% less turns.

Regards
