Here's a picture to show you what I'm talking about:

I know exactly what fitting you're talking about though. In 1991 Subaru issued a TSB addressing the problem with worn out pcv's allowing oil to dump into the intake on hard corners. The retrofit involved adding in this tee and extra hose. Every Loyale made from 1992-up has it. In theory, you shouldn't have any oil ingestion problems- I never did with my 92.

Anyway, in theory I shouldn't be getting a whole lot of oil, and I'm not, but I am getting a little bit, both through the blue T in the intake tube and through the PVC valve, and I wouldn't mind eliminating both sources of oil. After all, oil doesn't do anything great for combustion, really.
So, the reason this T is there is a failsafe against worn PCV systems? My PCV system has all of 10,000 miles on it, so it's in fine shape. That makes me think I can eliminate the T, plug the hole, and route the PCV lines where they need to go to the can. Sound right?
