What size is your RHB52 (ie 5200P12 turbine, 4219 compressor)? Check this 
against the size for the new RHB51. You're right, the RHB51 will be likely be 
a smaller turbine, with a smaller inlet diameter and I think a different 
flange and bolt hole pattern. Most likely wouldn't just bolt right up.

The effect of all of this will probably be a sharper boost rise, but less top 
end because the smaller turbine will flow less gas.

Hope this helps.
