Free shipping on the PVC delete from cfm too.
I have learned over time that with boost even the c-f-m adapter can and will allow oil to be blown out , One way I have found that helps this it to run the hose to the PCV adapter up over the top raid hose , this allows for a longer steeper drain back for the oil and much much less oil comes out of the hose

Very good to know Tom. I will do just that. I may run a catch can but I want to get this thing going again and finally finish tuning?

The valve cover should also not be going to anything that allows the engine air to get into the intake

Tom (all), have you seen the 1-way valves, typically found on some boosted Ford's brake vacuum line?
I have used the 1-way valves on the PCV line before the PCV valve and have not had issues...any issues. 4k miles since installed with functioning PCV and minimal added hardware and no oil issues.
Not sure if this is known, but the 1-way valves need to be on the purge lines as well as that is a leak path for boost... not to mention a pressurized fuel tank...

A better solution is to run a proper catch can/oil separator set up as well as keeping the PCV The crank case and upper engine, re valve cover, shouldn't share a catch can or separator, they should be separate.

I have tried the one way but it doesn't totally seal off and still lets a lot past and it goes into the intake manifold
