Porsche's filter the oil as it is returned to the sump only. Meaning the filter is in line on the return to sump line or artery. In this case you are OK because anything sloughed off from the bearing failures will be removed before being recirculated in the primary engine oil pump. During the rebuild process all the galleys in the case will require better than average cleaning disciplines. I would clean your oil cooler lines with diesel fuel (Gunk) and wash them out the best you can with a detergent degreaser. Again, your engine has two oil pumps, one for your crank case pressure (oil pressure at the journals) and a scavenge pump just like a radial aircraft engine. Just clean everything well and you will be OK. disassemble your oil pump and clean thoroughly (mandatory) check it for abrasions and galling from bearing fragments. Shouldn't be much because of the oil screen.
