Far as I know the hybrid compressor wheels are just hx40 wheels. So both should flow the same on the compressor side. Personally I like quick spool and the hybrid should spool faster and easier than the 40 so I'd probably go that route. I'd drill out the gate port as big as I could though to help hotside flow. Airflow wise though, both should be a pretty good match for your fuel.
I just want to be able to build my boost with without it being hot air I know the hx40 will be fine at 40 psi but what's the most a hybrid can handle ?
I am running the HX35/40 hybrid, the manufacturer said it was good for around 40 PSI. The problem with the HX40 is the shaft has a reduced diameter at some point and is known to break, that is why the hybrid is better as it uses the HX35 shaft which is the same diameter all the way, but has more flow with the HX40 compressor.

When I built my hybrid I actually used an hx40 cartridge that was from an 8.3 and the aftermarket wheel was bigger than the hx40's wheel. I did swap the wh1c shaft and turbine housing onto it though and ran 40 psi
