It makes perfect sense. If you read the question carefully you'll
realize the answer is simple. The placement of the filter is much
better understood after a series of six pack consumption. At that point
it becomes clear the exact location is of no consequence. The
optimization of the turbo is realized shortly after the driver says
"hold my beer and watch this".
Well the location of the filter kinda sorta does. You should have it
positioned before the turbo.<G>
The op didn't mention what the application was so all I can offer is get the
filter into cold air if possible, like maybe a freezer. But if you don't
want to effect the performance then leave the turbo and filter in it's box
