Reroute your PCV system and/or use a oil catch can.

Guess I'll make all the hose vents go through the catch can and see if that does it. If not, I'm blowing somewhere else

check your turbo, it may be leaking. (this would be bad)

I had this problem and ran a catch can but I will still leaking very badly into the catch can so I ended up doing a compression test and umm yet that was the end of that block.

I did a compression test in the summer and it was perfect. Did a leakage test and the numbers below 8%.... I'm hoping its just a catchcan problem...

Check the turbo outlet nozzle and inlet nozzle, if there's oil on the outlet and not the inlet you need a turbo rebuild.

Couple hundred bucks to rebuild a turbo... maybe $250-300. It really depends on if you like the turbo since you'll be about even for buying a newly rebuilt or rebuilding your current one.
