    It is a watery oil/gas/water mixture that I like to call Shmegma.

    Just how watery? I just drained mine and it was VERY watery. I think my IC might be leaking.

    Very, yes. If your I/C was leaking the engine would stumble badly while under moderate to heavy throttle.

    its only condensation from the engine during warm up etc and is normal if the intercooler was leaking you would have more serious symptoms if you get lots of oil then rings/pistons are bad.

    i just made a catch can to see what the hell it catches and also to get that system out the air intake but anywho all i see is a small amount of like condensation & gas.... No oil really but i dont think I even need a catch can maybe just mount the filter on the end of the vent hose and hang it high... I think its just evaporated gas and water vapor collection.If it wasnt going into a catch can it would just evaporate into the air. just my .02 on mine????? I just feel better that nothing is entering the sc inlet but AIR

    We tried to run with just a breather, but it does emit a oily residue that turns into a goo that runs down your paint.
