Dual filters were used on all turbo cars thru 1985 (some 86 cars so noted).
The introduction of the water cooled turbo bearing in 1985 eliminated the need
for the second filter.  1985 used BOTH the dual filters and the WC center
bearing.  1986> did not use the second filter.  The oil lines from the early
cars, btw, don't fit the later cars.  The turbo mounting flange was modified
on the later cars to make room for the water feed and return lines.
