Is the engine CFI or EFI?

Stock or modified?

I need a little more info.

Re: Oil pouring out breather element

Could be blowby?? Try fitting an oil seperator...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Either failed PCV valve or badly worn rings causing excess blowby. Buy a new PCV first they are cheap.
