It's the intake, how did it reverse all the way up the intake manifold through the Cai and out the filter? It's not a little amount either it's a pretty good sized pool.

Excessive crankcase pressure is forcing oil from under the valve cover out through the breather tube that connects to the intake tube, just before the throttle body. This is caused by "blowby" from poor piston ring seal, an ineffective PCV system or a combination of the two. Even new motors have blowby in a small amount, but as engine wear takes it's toll it can increase to the point where the PCV system can no longer handle it. Make sure your PCV system is working correctly first, before you get too worried. You can do a compression test to determine the condition of the ring seal.

Two things you can do:

1. Replace your PCV valve.

2. Remove the hose from the driver side valve cover and install a breather and plug off the CAI where the hose connects.

pcv all the way. oil will find its path of least resistance and if your pcv is clogged... it goes right back into the intake. routine maintenance can save you a lot of headaches in the long run.

:no That will allow unmetered air to enter through the breather, make its way through the crankcase and PCV valve into the intake tract. Unmetered air = bad.

most likely time for a new PCV valve and I would replace the hose that connects from the PCV valve to the Plenum. There is an updated hose.

drive your car around till it warms up. then pull the oil cap off and if it looks like a puffs alot of smoke you got some blow by issues.

The motorbonly has 8000 miles on it though. Bought it as a long block from nappa, heads and everything already on.

The ring may not have seated yet if it's that fresh, although they should be by now, IMO. Did you follow any break-in procedures? Since it is a new engine, I would certainly check it over and do a compression check as soon as possible. If there is a problem, you may be covered under warranty.
