Tip, if youre going Holset vband, buy a new one for a Holset or, get one with the downpipe/vband clamp. It is not a standard Vband.

You will need to get one from Holset/from a store for a Holset. The diameters are the same as every other v band out there but, the flange itself is different. Ive read that its the same one one you will find on a Borg and some PTEs but, I cant say that is true. I just bought a new one from a company who sells aftermarket parts for trucks.

The HX35 and even the HX40, is a very small turbo, space shouldn't be an issue.

This is an HX40, divided T3 16cm2 housing.





Hopefully that gives you an idea of the size of a HX40 which, will help make these make sense.

Left is a HX30 the middle is the HX35 and the right is a HX40.

I wouldn't get the elbow, you want as much straight pipe out of the turbine housing as possible. The general rule is, 30 diameters before the first bend. Now, we all know that isn't possible but, you still want to get as close to that as you can.
