Default flanges

So I am getting ready to order flanges from weirtech to start making my own manifold/downpipe. I have a very easy/stupid question hoping to get answered really quickly so I can place my order.

I am confused between the t25/28 turbo flange and the t3...what are the main differences? I was told by the guy that sold me my turbo that its a t3....when I went on the site he "bought" it from it has both t3 and t25 in the description. When I first posted pics of it knowledgeable members such as Braineak said there was nothing "t3" about that turbo. So now I have no Idea what flange I should get. Confusing as ****.

here is the tubo:





Can someone please help me out? I can take many many more pictures along with measurements upon request. thanx

HKS turbos (at least the 2530 and 2835) use a standard Garrett T25/28 5 bolt outlet.

Looks like a standard skyline flange from a RB20/RB25. I know the dump pipes are all over ebay you might find the flange with a bit of looking. Someone would make them for sure, those turbos are common as over here.
