    Question Can you use a hybrib turbo on a standard map?

    Basically my turbo has gone and I am considering putting a hybrid turbo on and running on a standard map for about 4months until it goes in for a remap.
    If I keep the revs down and just plod around in the car not really using the turbo until it is mapped would this be ok or is driving with a hybrid on a standard map a big no no?
    Personally I think if I keep the revs down and aviod using the turbo in a heavy way I think it would be fine, but would like to know what you guys think!

    Cheers for any help guys!

    they say not with a hybrid, but dont know why as its ok to drive with a vxr turbo or uprated vxr turbo on std map.

    ask the people you are getting the the turbo from..but i would say if you ask them to set the actuator up too factory psi then it should be fine??

    Happened to an AOC member.

    Held boost at 14psi, but overboosted to 22psi. As soon as it overboosted, the ecu pulled the boost back down.

    My thoughts are, drive the car, but don't give it the full beans. My concern would be fuelling, in that it could be running lean at certain times.

    If its a full hybrid then it will be basicly a bigger turbo so producing more air so as LMD has said the ecu will wonder WTF and put the car into limp mode.

    Also if the engine gets more air then it will need more fuel to make the mix right and if the standard map doesnt allow it then you will run lean which wont be good.

    If you have to fit it now just dont give it full throttle as said above

    Cheers guys, you have confirmed what I thought.
    This is the hybrid set I was looking at buying from a guy on vxr online.

    He is sending me some pics tomorrow and plus he is local so I can go and have a look before buying.
    What do you think - be honest, as i'm sure you will :-)
