so the reason i had i changed was becasue f the snout leak. leaked everwhere in my engine bay. smelled nasty too

there was also some oil where the rotors are, and in the plenum.

is this the PCV sucking up my oil and spraying it, or the new s/c oil i put in to top it off the previous week?

might just go to home depot today and get some fittings and hose, and one of those filters see what happens after a week!

Probably came from the PCV through the intake. It's not uncommon to find a puddle in the bottom of the intercooler as well...

Ditto....that's why I rigged up an inline fuel filter on the PCV valve hose. You can also buy an oil seperator intended for an air compressor.

I just went to autozone and picked up one of the plastic ones that were located in the section with all the oil and air filters. It's a Tee style with 5/16" hose barbs. I needed about 2ft of 5/16 vacuum hose (1ft each side of filter) to get the filter located high enough that I could see when it was filling with oil.

I used a tbird fuel filter, it didint work very well cause I couldint tell when to drain it. Find a clear one for a carb, no part # necessary
