Had some problems with the 300 today
Felt like it was breaking up as soon as I took off from the ramp- it started clearing up a bit but a took the seat off for a look- lots of oil spewing from my little R&D filter fitted on the relief valve (blow off valve is blocked off, so no filter there).
I also noticed that there was a buzzing sound coming from the solenoid on the throttle body- don't remember hearing that before... is that the norm? Anybody else's do that?
Good news is I checked the exhaust filter when I got home (43 hrs) and it looks to be in great shape! I'll post a pic later...
Why so much oil out of that relief valve filter though? When I took the stock hose off there was very little evidence of oil in it or the stock airbox (have the Riva PF now). The oil didn't look to be overfilled when I went out.
Gotta get some exhaust gaskets to put the filter back in. Then I guess I'm getting rid of the relief valve filter and going back to the stock hose- but I might still have a problem with the ski.

So what is your problem
are you saying its breaking done when you load it up then itclears.
I would start with plugs

i posted months ago on removing the bypass filter and going back to oem vacuum hose because of that very reason sometimes the engine breathes heavier and dumps the oily mess and yes they all make the buzzing sound when you insert the key im with waz and start with plugs.

My first problem is figuring why it is dumping so much oil back into the air intake as I think this is the cause of the engine not running properly.

I feel you may be right because Riva supplied a larger diameter hose (top of catch can to PF tube) with their PF... maybe that, coupled with the new location of the hose is creating too much vacuum in the catch can?
Lots of oil in the intercooler.

the relief valve/bypass valve vacuum type hose to the air intake
top of catchcan to airbox leave it be

Do a leak down and compression test if you suspect something is wrong. Is your oils level dropping.

Oil level has drop very little and I have been adding accordingly... but now I think I know where its been going- into the intake tract and pooling in the IC.
