What I remember is that the 1319's didn't have quite the right bead shape to hold folding tires on--Michelin Elan, early SBI Turbo's, etc. The 1320 was the same box shape with a slightly different bead.
   I think that when Specialized started including their go/no go chart in the package with each Turbo was the same time that the 1320 came to market. David Feldman Vancouver,WA
