File: 1468555590148.jpg -(24503B / 23.93KB, 530x297) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size. TiCl4
If Ti has the follow electron config as a base config: (where ^ represents an e-)

^^ ^ ^
4s 3d 3d 3d 3d 3d

would it hybridise to the following (to accommodate (Cl-)4)?
^ ^ ^ ^
sp3d sp3d sp3d sp3d sp3d

leaving it with a final config of (with bonded (Cl-)4):
^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
sp3d sp3d sp3d sp3d sp3d

thereby classifying it as a lewis acid because it can accept a lone pair?
i hope this makes sense

fuck that formatting did not work
to clarify
first example: essentially the 4 of the 5 sp3ds would have 1 electron in each
second example: 4 of 5 sp3ds filled due (Cl-)4 electrons and last orbital unfilled, allowing lone pair acceptance

is this right?

okay this is some weird abstract visual gymnastics here
please redo this on MS paint and repost a picture.

hey man not sure im following you exactly, but it would be much easier to think of this in terms of CFT/ligand field model, as in 4 M-L bonding interactions lying lower in energy than the metal based d-orbitals (e and t2 sets) which have an occupancy of 4. Electronically speaking TiCl4 has low-lying MO's, of primarly Ti character, so yeah it is fairly electrophilic and a decent lewis acid. evidenced in that it happily forms adducts with donor solvents such as THF
