nope, seen on here in another post that the inlet and outlet manifolds are different due to the different space between exhaust ports and intake ports
im sure someone else can confirm this

possibly but odds are it will have to be custom made
would be easyer/cheaper to just get a turbo manifold to suit your motor
they are getting cheaper by the day now

can i ask why do you want a B series turbo manifold for you E series any way?

An adaptor could be made up fairly easily but then if you go to all that effort you may as well get a manifold made, that is unless you happen to have access to a really decent manifold for a bargain.

You need to do a cost/benefit analysis :p

I think what people don't realise is that the b series manifolds are cast steel, as opposed to iron. Making them much easier to work with, and much more viable for conversions. The average ghetto conversion star (ie: 'steam' pipe welded to e series iron manifold) could weld a new flange on to the b series manifold and be twice as effective and twice as reliable. The b series log potential is under estimated.
