Have you tried driving around staying out of boost and seeing if you still get oil in the catch can?

A leak down test will tell you more for sure.

I like that drain setup way easier to drain then mine. Is it just a barbed nippled on the bottom of the catch can to a rubber hose to another barbed fitting to the valve?

If I stay out of boost then less oil yep. & should be noted that I'm hard on the car every time, and it's ran flawlessly at 400HP for 5 years now. This oil issues came suddenly in the past month and has gotten worse.

Bottom of catch can has a threaded nipple, attach hose of any length and valve on the end. Use the AC drain hose clips to hold it in place.

Need to figure out a way to have the catch can drain back into the crankcase when you shut the engine down.

You could weld in a bung on the back end side of the oil pan and then get a one way ball check valve so that when the engine shuts off and the pressure inside the crank case is 0 the ball check valve opens and allows gravity to drain the oil back into the pan.

Where in the engine bay do you have the catch can mounted? I couldn't spot it in the pictures I looked through or the YT videos. I see the drain hose, but not the actual mounting location.

@Grumpys93 had a decent suggestion.

yaaa heard / read of people using a drain > back into the pan, but you're also draining the milky crap too unless picked up by a sponge / mesh. + no issues the past 5 years. Plus i want to fix her right, and this could be a broken piston too. I think we are talking about filling the catch can in 500km.

I already booked an appt to get a leak down test performed.

(reservoir and cooler no longer in these spots, but oil catch can is).
