The oil going to the turbo will come from the engine which should be fresh oil from the oil tank.

All the oil is filtered before going back into the tank from the engine. The exception is the oil from the turbo. It seems on all but the very early cars the oil from the turbo is not filtered when it comes out of the turbo and then gets pumped back into the tank.

Both the oil tank & the engine should have been cleaned during the rebuild.

I don't see any harm in fitting oil filters before and after the turbo providing they are cleaned on a very regular basis.
