The 2022 series looks to have a larger intake area, due to a smaller diameter nose cone.
Is the mass airflow of the 101 less than the 2022?

The Olympus originally started out as a 10,000 Lb Thrust engine. The Mk-101 was the first series. The most powerfull of the flight units was the Mk-593 as used in the Concorde, 29,000 Lb (?) in A/B.
The marine/Industrial units, went through several variations as well, but the Mk-2017, 2020, 2022 and 2024 were of a kin, and basically differed in the hot section and maximum teperature capabilities only.
So....yep, the 101 has quite a bit lower mass airflow that the units we work on. If can find my book "The Olympus" by The Rolls Royce heritige Trust, (Dang it, I put it somewhere...........)I'll list the different models and airflows.
