I remember several years ago the listed diameter for the CTOL and CV variants of the F135 having an inlet diameter of 46 inches and maximum diameter of 51 inches. But now, every source, even ones from PW, lists inlet diameter as 43 inches and maximum diameter 46 inches. Did something change?

When there are a lot of hits when searching the F-35 forum for information then searching on one word, then searching the search results with another relevant word and REPEAT next word, is often a good way to find items quickly but YMMV:

Yes, I've seen these sources and posts pointing to the F135 having 46 inch inlet diameter and 51 inch diameter maximum, but the confusion is from P&W's current website and data sheet that now says 43 inch inlet diameter and 46 inch max diameter. I don't know how to reconcile this, which is why I asked.
