    Yes, it's oil blow by of the pcv system. Just wait till you see your intercooler.

    +1 on the seperator. You could also run a breather if you dont mind cleaning your engine bay more often. I just run a seperator that i made myself, it cost me like $20 and it has been working awsome. Youd be suprised how much oil it catches

    Home Depot has the small one you'll need.
