they could cause seals to leak, sice if they get too clogged, the pressure uilds up and blows a seal somewhere. could blow the dipstick out too

yeah, the passenger side had a TON of oil in the lil Upipe connector , the driver side had a lil, not much. Guess i'll change it out when i'm doin the pulley. car seems fine, although its kinda rough in the lower RPMs and feals slow sometimes.

After my build, I used natural oil for like 5000 miles with no issues. Then I switched to synthetic. In 2000 miles, I have "lost" a quart of it. Every new day that I take it out, it blows white smoke under my first acceleration. My BOV's are MUCH quieter than they used to be. Imma check for oil in my intake tomorrow.
