If you wanted a really trick setup, you'd feed from the oil filter housing into an electric powered positive displacement pump (probably an impeller type pump?), so that you can meter exactly how much oil passes through it. Then to the turbo, then a spring regulator at the turbo oil drain with a generous tube back to the oil pan.

That way you can keep the flow up, but the pressure down at a fixed level without dropping the rest of the system pressure. In this situation, the pump would probably be restricting flow rather than pushing it forward.

There's also the possibility of some sort of variable mechanical throttling valve. These sorts of things exist for industrial water systems, you could probably do something similar.

Constant Pressure Valve

All in all, for a given pressure though the turbo lines, the amount of flow through the turbo is constant unless you control the drop in the system somehow. It doesn't matter what sort of bypass setup or restrictor you have to obtain that pressure, the flow through the CHRA is the same.

I use a inline filter with my FP3052. Every time I have ever checked it there has been some carbon in the filter. I think it takes me less then 5min to pull the filter and put in the new clean screen. I do this once a week. Its so easy why not do it.
