    This might sound stupid but i have to ask. I recently turned up the boost on my b16(stock internals) to 10psi(greddy td05/18g) and about a month later i noticed engine oil coming out of the valve cover vent on the back side of the valve cover. whats happening, should i be concerned and should i have some thing changed or upgraded? thanks in advance.

    Ring are getting worn. It means you're getting some blowby. It's not bad til piles and piles of SMOKE is billowing out that vent. Catch can is a good idea, definitely.
