    Not a chance fuelling and airflow would be all over the place,at your own peril.

    would it? surely the boost would be monitored in the same was as before, just the wastegate would open earlier as the boost limit was reached earlier?

    i'm no expert any level on turbo's, but i'd expect it would work fine - you'd just be waste(gate)ing all that extra boost you could be using.

    A custom remap is the bare minimum for installation and seeing any benefit.

    Is this a theoretical or practical question?

    I guess theoreticaly just changing the turbo would be OK at low-mid revs. I'm not sure the N75 would necasserily be OK on it's own under full load. You don't even want to risk running lean IMO.

    Practically you can't just bolt it on. Your mani, downpipe, oil/coolant lines and turbo intake pipe are all the wrong size/in the wrong place.
