Oil everywhere after boosting...wtf?

So im still tuning, so i only get into boost when datalogging, but everytime i do, oil seems to seep out from somewhere....not sure where. Its not alot of oil...just enough to get all over the bottom of the engine and drip a couple of times. And of course it smokes like crazy when it gets on the exhaust....what do you guys think.....

check your oil lines going to your turbo, and to other components.

IIRC He's PWSC. I'd say PCV or an oil feed line.

You could be blowing boost into the engine , who is doing your tuning ? I would loose the PVC , take the plunger/spring out of it , add a 3/8 hose and run the hose up over the top raid hose and down to even with the bottom of the trans , then take the hose to the intake and plug it
