Default RHB5 Q's

I have searched here, mnet, and the internet....

Inlet Flange?

I cant find any real usable information.

I have a chance to get a T3 manifold but I dont know if it will bolt up or if I need an adapter plate.

Thanks.

Mine is a part of an old Bell System III kit. Flange appears to be 2.25"x2.25" square.

The RHB5 VJ5, VJ11, VJ14, and I'm sure others use a 2.125" x 2.125" (center to center) square bolt pattern. The hot side inlet is ~1.75" in diameter.

My measurement method was using a steel 6-inch scale going from bolt-center to bolt-center, done with the turbo mounted on the manifold. If kcbhiw provided published numbers (or dimensions measured from the turbine inlet), by all means go by those.

The values I provided were measured with a caliper. I had to build an adapter plate to mate to a T25 flange on my manifold.

Any sort of published info on these particular turbos is nearly impossible to find. I suppose it's because they're so small, there's not much interest in reasearching or using them.
