what you guys think of a

will it be able to perform well in the circuit, and yes it runs on a built 2.0 6bolt.
It should have fast spool. He does wish to hit around 400-450whp.
If 400-450whp is all that's desired, then the 8-blade HX35 will suit that perfectly.
In a bolt on housing the 8-blades spool up wicked fast.
Do some research and you will see.
There are even videos on you tube showing the ridiculously fast spool of a 8-blade hx35.
I read of someone that has done this hybrid you speak of on the DSMTalk forums.
Come to think of it, it may have been a HX40 in a FP30 Series Housing.
Regardless, if it was a good combination, we would have heard more about it.
About the only thing one gains from doing said operation is the fancy Turbine Housing/Wastegate/V-Band O2 Housing..., that's it, it's not proven, it may not work well at all and if none of the parts are in his possession, then it's at least a $1000+ experiment, if he has a healthy HX35 to run in said housing...
Tell him if he has a $400 FP30 Series housing, (that he's willing to butcher) and $250 FP V-Band O2 Housing and an external gate laying around then try it and report back.
If not, then tell him to save his $1000 to purchase the items and have the housing machined to accept the much larger HX35 turbine wheel.
There is absolutely no reason to run the FP30 series turbine housing on a HX35.
The Bullseye Power .55 A/R DSM Bolt On Housing is proven to 500whp at only 30psi.
Spool is 20+psi by 3500 rpm and that's with 272's in a 1g head with a 1g intake manifold.
If your buddy needs to buy everything to make any set-up happen, then it's all about pricing everything out and seeing which option he's willing to try.
The bolt on housing with a 8-blade is proven to produce the power he wants with ridiculous spool speeds.
The bolt on housing with a 7-blade is proven to produce 500whp at 30psi with 20+psi by 3500 rpm, and that's with 272 sized camshafts, a 1g head and intake manifold.
Then there's the best performing, most expensive and fastest spooling set-up The 7-blade HX35 in the stock 12cm^2 housing.
Weld the internal wastegate flapper shut, build a custom O2 housing, buy a T3 divided collector exhaust manifold provisioned for twin external gates and never look back.
Proven 25psi by 3500 rpm in 3rd gear.
Proven 25psi by 3100 rpm in 5th gear.
There's even a HX35 in the 10's already.
Not sure what housing it's running, but it's flying!
I'm pretty sure the best bang for the buck is the bolt on housing for the HX35, period.
