As an added bonus it seals alot better & I have been boosting better with the updated cap. Oil can travel around the valve cover on the lip where it seals.

    That revised cap was because people were not securing the cap level when it went directly to the valve cover. Now there is an extension that comes with the cap. Again, this has nothing to do with excess PCV pressure.

    Thanks for the help everyone. Root cause was the valve cover. Since I need the car back in service and the check valve was still in the intake and I hadn't received the PCV kit yet I went ahead and put it back together with a new valve cover. All the oil leaks are gone. I'll keep an eye on the intake check valve and when it finally let's go I'll go ahead and install the kit. Thanks again.
