TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, THERE IS NO FILTER FOR A TURBO. WHY WOULD THERE BE ? AIR AND FUEL FILTERS ARE NEEDED TO BE NEW. FRESH OIL IS CRITICAL TO KEEP TURBO OPERATION SMOOTH. OIL FILTER MUST ALSO BE NEW. THE HEAT GENERATED BY TURBO IS HARMFUL, TO OIL. BREAKS OIL DOWN , REQUIRES SOONER OIL CHANGES. KEEP OIL TOPPED OFF AT ALL TIMES, THIS IS A MACHINE, NOT JUST A GROCERY GETTER !
