Hey Fredmeister,

Dave (above) confirmed that the oil returning from the turbo is not filtered. Though, at least on some models of the factory oil catch tank (under the turbo) there is a screen element. Apparently the factory added one at some point. I currently have the filter that Jfairman suggested after the catch tank and before the scavenge pump. It's got about 1000 miles on it and it's working fine. It's a 40 micron filter. I might move to after the pump as you suggest for a real filter. Maybe a screen is Ok before the pump and a filter should be after the pump as you suggest. So far so good. The experiment continues ;-)
