    Personally I would prob put the dual port on...This is like the only time I would recommend it...for the sole purpose you don't have a properly functioning BPV...Get a good used on ASAP...They can be had for like $30.00....

    A tiny bit of oil should be in there/intercooler due to turbo. Why is there sand in it?

    I think you should look into where that oil is comming from it is most definately not blowby, this is on the intake side of the throttle plate for starters. I would take a look at the hose leading into the intercooler from the pressure side of the turbo, if there is oil in there it is more likely oil is getting in from your turbo. I guess the point is bolting on another bov is not going to fix the problem....you need to figure out where the oil is comming from!
