    BBT Hybrid as a direct OEM replacement? Looking to 'future-proof'!

    Anyone know if I could swap my stock turbo (on its way out) for a BBT hybrid whilst keeping safe, stock HP?

    Not enough cash to change the rods and do all the stage 2 mods at the moment, but may do in the future: Seems a waste to change the turbo for another stock K04 and have to upgrade again in a few years once the modding bug bites!

    Yea, it will just have to be run toned down a few notches with limited boost as you don't have the supporting modifications.
    its a good idea in my opinion.

    yep perfectly fine, but get it mapped "down" to suit it... bolt on with a stiffer actuator (recommended) it will overboost.

    Im thinking of doing the same "future proofing", but a mapping (up or down) is around £400 for me, and I would rather save that until it is time to unleash the power. If the BBT hybrid is ordered with the stock actuator, will it still overboost?

    depends on your existing map.. less likely with soft actuator but it is a hybrid at the end of the day

    The existing map is a stage 1 - unfortunately I dont know from who though. Is this good or bad in relation to overboost?
    I have a stock BAM ECU which I plan on using for a wideband conversion, but that could wait until further mods are done...

    Sorry for highjacking your thread eightfour7two
