I notice on the 82 931, the separator is updated as compared to 1980 models. At the bottom it has a v-shape to help the oil find it's route better. Did this change occur in 81, or 82? The 80 purolator separator was just flat at the bottom.

The 81 has the updated separator. It also includes a larger bore return fitting.

And, when did they go to the plastic seperator? My early '80 has the old aluminum can.

Does anyone know where to find a new one cheap? (81-up is plastic) Cuz autoatlanta wants $80 for one. Can NAPA or Pep-boys order from the purlator PN for less?

some of the 80s were plastic too, probably depends on your serial number or what leftover parts porsche had laying around.

They must have changed shotly after the start of the '80 model year. I worked on one built 9/79 which had the aluminum seperator. Mine, built 11/79, is plastic. Another odd thing about the early models is the aluminum turbo mounting bracket. The bool only shows one part number.
