A/C compressor question, also 1985.5 Turbo??

I was removing my alternator today and noticed that there was a valve on the line going from the compressor but really close to it, I read on another forum that on a 1986 951 the hogh and low pressure valves are right next to each other on the top by the driver's side, mine has 1 by the drivers side another by the compressor, is this ok?

Another thing is my VIN says I have a 1985 Porsche, because it has the letter F as in the FN45 part of the VIN number, but it's a Turbo, were there 1985.5 Turbos made? thanks.

there seems to have been a few '85 turbos, but i can't find any information about them being produced for the states. i'm guessing it was a grey market car.

you can check this thread;
Daily driving a 951?

The 944 Turbo was introduced as a 1986 model. Porsche's model year starts in around September so cars produced in that month are usually (but not always) the new year model.
