As for the south and the west being more abrasive, I didn't know anyone would do such a study much less pay attention to it.
I can assure you ALL filter companies have numerous law suits settled and pending.
Regarding any study of abrasive environment, that is a given in the halls of the large OE engineering departments. It's based on years of warranty parts inspections. Warranty amounts to millions $ and are tracked by application and region.
Regarding turbo engines, a close inspection of the compressor blade leading edge will give you a complete picture what to expect downstream.
I wouldn't spend $1K for a turbo, $10-20K for an engine then place a foam/oil filter upstream.
