Re: MC engine that lacks Turbo filter

Anyone want a Fram "turbo" oil filter for an '87 5kCST? <grin>

It's very cute though...an itty-bitty filter.  What's even better is that
the Haynes shows where this filter goes, but doesn't mention that only the
earlier turbos have this filter.  Gave me a headache for about 2 days
trying to figure out where the f*@# that stupid filter went.
