    Okay so I went out driving in my turbo mustang and I noticed oil coming out of my valve cover breather. Why is it doing that. I know you get blow by but I do have baffles in the valve covers. Something I should be worried about? Thanks guys.

    there are threads about FI and PCV valves...I would do a search on PCV on here and Corral. You are just building too much pressure in the crankcase.


    I say search not to be a dick, but because I dont know how to explain it to you...I removed my PCV valve and vent my system to avoid it.

    I had to put in an "Oil Seperator" cause my blower sucks oil out of my PCV. I also had to put in a different hose to deal with the oil sweating out of the stock hose.

    I can't find my pictures of it at the moment. But if you ask, I'll look harder. I bought mine at Lowes for $15. Don't buy a $75 one from Steeda or someone. They are both the same.

    I have better pictures than this but I can't find them right now.

    In between the two arrows you can see my Oil Separator.

    Will that help? I thought if I took the filter out it wouldn't trap any oil at all?

    oil is heavier than air, it will fall into the collector as it passes by. I have never run that filter, and I have run the same one on two turbo cars and one supercharged.
