    I called World One today, and got a voicemail. I left a message, but didnt mention your name Fadi, or anything about a dress.

    What is included in this adapter kit? Is there any way I could fabricate the parts myself? ::insert laughs here::

    if you take off the BOV and veer into your intercooler with a flashlight is it coated in there? or better yet, take off your intercooler altogether, look into the intercooler outtake (the part that connects to the throttle body) and see if theres oil in there. and lastly, since you have the intercooler off, look into your turbo and see if the messiness continues into the turbo. the turbo could be the source of the problem. have you heard anything wierd as of lately comming from your engine bay? if nothing is gunking up the turbo and it looks clean the only other two places it could be comming from is the throttle body itself (unlikely i think) and the vacuum hose (even more unlikely, IMO) let us know what you find
    woooo

    How much is coming out? If it's not that much, it could be blow-by crap from the crank case/pcv lines and a catch can is needed. That would be my only thought.
