If from the valves, likely wouldn't end up in the oil, so that's out. Likely from the pistons/rings and/or turbo.

I like the idea of an inline filter after the turbo. Reminds me of the "failsafe" systems some guys run, by using a 993 oil filter console on earlier motors. This ensures that if your motor eats itself, you don't have to spend the extra time cleaning the ENTIRE oil system...just the engine.

IIRC, Eric's motor hasn't ever been apart - or at least in a VERY long time. Wouldn't be shocking that there's carbon build up somewhere in the system.
