Filter results after 200 miles

After replacing the cams and rockers I have been very careful about changing the oil as I break in the engine. I changed if after only about 15 minutes the first time. I just changed it a second time at 200 miles. I installed the experimental filter at the last oil change.

I want to show you what the filter caught and solicit comments. This car has never been shut down hot after being "in the boost," yet it looks like a lot of coke is coming out of the turbo. This may be a normal amount, I don't know.

This makes me question the capacity of the filter vs. the amount of coke produced. A fender-mount remote oil filter might be a better solution.

Here is the hard carbon caught by the filter, the filter element itself, and an American penny for size comparison.
