RE: MC Engine that lacks a Turbo Filter
As far as I know, all US spec MC engines had single filter setup. Some
early European MC models had dual filter setup. Factory parts CD-ROM for
87 200 turbo shows both single and dual filter setup.
87 Audi 5000CS turbo (mine)
88 Renault Medallion wagon (mom's)
91 mountain bike (just in case both cars broke at the same time :-)
