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
cheers

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

is this right?

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
