    what sort of hybrid turbo? like mixing parts or are you talking about Audi/BMW/Volvo like electric assisted turbo?

    Regardles of what turbo you're gonna run into issues with the exhaust side (or the turbo intake side) where our turbos are not he standard intake shape. (ie: merging of the 2 exhaust manifolds before turbo)

    theres no off-the-shelf replacement without a custom billeted intake merger thingo, or just a rebuild with bigger intake side turbines (18T to 20T for example)

    I’m pretty sure the 3076 will go on from https://www.owendevelopments.co.uk/p...rrett_GT3076R/ will need the adapter

    Try the Facebook group, ask for Joe Hemsley or Matt Duffield, they can point you towards the companies that do them.

    You know what I wondered, why cant you just use a generic T3 or T4 twin scroll adaptor llike this:
    https://www.cxracing.com/EB-T4-DUAL-CAST-VB_2-2_KIT

    then just replace the exhaust manifold(s) to match up to that. you really should replace the turbo/exhaust manifolds anyhow cause they are horribly restrictive
