I've used the Mahle's on my '89 100Q, and they are the OC-47.
I got them for about $5 each from Imparts. I'm pretty damn sure that
the same one is used for Angela's '90 90Q20V.

I do seem to remember the OC-85 being listed for the 200/200Q, which
confirms your theory about the turbo application (for single filter
turbos - I recall that dual-filter turbos use the same as NA, and
a separate turbo filter).
