I recently replaced the cold side intercooler pipe and deleted the throttle valve. In doing so, I noticed a lot of oil in the pipe. So, I started doing research. It looks like the OEM Ford Crank Case Vent unit allows some amount of oil to circulate back through the turbo. Supposably by design.

I have found articles / videos in favor of all 3 options. One guy (mechanic) is adamant that the factory fixes issues that are brought to him.

I just don't see how sending oil back through the turbo is a good idea. Adding oil to the air system just seems counterproductive.

So I looked at the oil catch systems or the reroute system.

What do you guys think or what is your experience?
