Not sure if its a bad sign but when I put my CFM on I found the same thing. I asked acouple diesel mechanics at my local dealership and they said that it was normal:dunno:

I rerouted the cc vapors to a frame rail filter and then back to the intake tube. It took a while, but the filter finally got saturated and I drained several tablespoons of oil out of it yesterday. It is a GREAT mod. I installed it so that the ccv tube initially takes a vertical path up and over the brake master cylinder. From there, it goes down to the frame filter in a constant slope downwards (I made sure I did not create any pockets to trap oil and create more back pressure). From the filter, it is a constant vertical slope back up to the intake tube. It is working VERY WELL!
