re: Oil for turbocharger

Several have posted about the number of oil filters on the turbo cars. The
'80-'83 Audi 5000 turbo has two oil filters including the early Quattro. I use a
Fram PH46 for the turbo filter on my 83 5000.

In the Audi service manual for the 81-83 5000, there is a description of an oil
thermostat that limits the turbo oil pressure until it reaches normal operating
temperature. Perhaps it is related to the recommendation in the owners manual 
not to use full power until the oil temperature gauge has reached a certain
indication. Does anyone know more about this?
