This is a typical problem with 7.3s. It's basically oil coming back through your intake manifold from the boost tubes. One way to remedy this problem is the CCV mod. PM NCHornet or Raul @ Stealth sells them now. It's basically a system that drains back to a canister & you empty it every oil change.
