Any Input ?????????

Has this happened to anyone else?? I did the DY Intake(tymar) and drove to AZ. pullin a trailer (about 4500lbs) driving about 75 all the way but when I got to AZ I noticed an oil leak about the size of a 50cent piece looked under and found it on the tranny bel housing coming from above the oil pan (hasn't leaked a drop since I've owned the truckabout 2 yrs.)came home and still finding drops in my driveway and on the housing.. so out of curiousity I put the stock air filter back on and I haven't seen any more oil leaks.. seems weird to me but do you guys have any input??????

check your intake manifold valley, if you have a leak up top, like from the turbo, or hp oil lines, the oil puddles in the bottom of the intake valley, then makes its way to the drain hole in the left rear of the intake and runs down the bellhousing, I would have sworn it was my rear main seal leaking, but it was the turbo pedistool o- rings, this is on a 2000 7.3

What did you do with the crank case vent? It needs to vent to open air with no restriction.

Just take it off...its on the driverside valve cover it looks like a rectanglular pyramid thing...and turn it backwards so that it vents out the rear of the engine...but put a much longer piece of hose on there so it doesn't leak onto the engine.
