Does a turbo have a neck? Can anyone help?

Turbo housing / turbo throat
Explanation:
I think the former is more likely. As evidence Ernst gives:
"Getriebehals m, -verlängerung f (Kfz) / extension housing" showing that "Hals" can mean "housing" and
"Düsenhals m (Raumf) / blast pipe neck, nozzle throat" showing the possibility of throat, but again from the context I think it is "housing" - "turbo housing" used technically in link below:

turbo inlet/outlet [collar/flange/duct, etc.], turbo collar


Explanation:
turbo inlet/outlet [collar/flange/duct]
turbo collar

It would seem that a turbo could have a neck just like a carburetor etc. However, a Google search yielded zero meaningful hits for "turbo neck", but many hits for turbo inlet/turbo outlet (listed by itself or more often followed by _flange_, _duct_ , _tube, etc.). There are also several hits for _turbo collar_

These hits are generally in the automotive context, but the logic should apply to a blast furnace turbo-blower as well. The following text, accompanied by a diagram and photos, describes and illustrates a blast furnace blower-turbo setup, though without mentioning the “Hals” specifically. It may be helpful in visualizing your context:

>>The design of a structural frame supporting a turbo-blower supplying pressurized air to a blast furnace in a steel mill can be used to illustrate the structural design process. As shown in Figure 3-8, the turbo-blower consists of a turbine and a blower linked to an air inlet stack. Since the vibration of the turbo-blower is a major concern to its operation, a preliminary investigation calls for a supporting frame which is separated from the structural frame of the building. … Since the structural steel frame also supports a condenser, an air inlet and exhaust, and a steam inlet and exhaust in addition to the turbo-blower, a static analysis is made to size its members to support all applied loads.

(ambient) air inlet


Explanation:
The site <http://www.howstuffworks.com/> has great explanations and pictures, and from what I gather using the illustrations and the context you provided this should be the ambient air inlet which is shaped like a Hals and is leading to the compressor turbine where the air gets compressed before it gets to an engine cylinder via a charge air cooler.

Cheerio,
Dierk
