initially if a lot of oil is being sucked through the pcv there is something wrong somewhere, wether its a new engine or not, millions of std and performance built factory cars run a pcv. even 500'000km taxies, and i bet they dont have this problem..

i run 12psi boost through a std au engine and im still running the factory pcv, i dont burn excesive amounts of oil......

Where is your PCV plumbed into the intake? Between air filter and turbo or directly to the intake manifold?

Take the oil filler cap off. Give the engine a good rev if it blows smoke your in trouble if it doesnt, all good.

Well nothing was changed except the engine itself, could a high volume pump cause it? Also when I removed the previous engine (was on LPG) I noticed that the log was full of oil also
