Well like the title said i removed the hose from the pcv that goes into the intake, to check for oil possibly going into the intake from it. Air came out of it while the car was idling (and smoking lots) but no oil. not even a trace. maybe this could be one step closer to ruling out cylinder ring blowby. thought? ideas. btw i still havent had a chance to do a leak down, i really need to i guess. what percent should the cylinders be at?

Here is some food for thought. Why would you expect oil to come out while idling? If air and lots of smoke was coming out while idling, what would be the source of that air and smoke? How much more air and smoke would you expect to come out while you are boosting? And finally, could that volume of air and smoke under boost conditions possibly push oil droplets through the large PCV hose and the turbo?

I think less than 10% is considered acceptable. I have one cylinder that is almost 5%. At idle nothing can be observed coming from my large PCV hose.
