So what's up with that?!? Oil in the vac. line:eek: It looked like it was fresh out of my engine.

There was a guy on here selling a kit to collect the oil and put it back where it goes but I don't remember which one of the guys it was. Its one of the big Atlantic coast guys but thats all I remember.

They sell vac pumps specifically for this (Moroso), some people use smog pumps (GM).

When two pistons move "down" the other two are on their way "up", leaving the volume of the crankcase constant.

Plus how can you create pressure with wide open ports in the cam cases, and in the crankcase?
If you are saying the blow by is so high as to cause this, you need new rings not a vacuum pump.
I will say this, if you restrict the crankcase pressure vent system on a turbo-the cam seals will blow out of their glands.
To add, there have been posts saying aftermarket PCV valve are not good for turbos, stay with gen U wine Subaru for these.

Could it be that the turbo is making enough draw on the intake hose ( where I have my pasenger side engine vent hose going to ) that it is SUCKING oil into the turbo/ intake?
As I type this it makes sence!! It has not done this for the last 2 days, but this morning I checked my oil and I was 1qt low. I put a quart in, and BLAMO!! I have the oil burn problem agen. It's got to be the case vent going into the intake hose BEFORE the turbo, the vacume line wasent the one with oil in it, it was the intake spiting oil out hte vac. line port under hard boost!
