Makes sense... I can at least discard that as an issue then...hopefully the valve cover replacement will take care of the oil burning issue...which is all that is leftRight...no longer are vapors drawn into the intale manifold when vacuum is present. It all now goes into the turbo inlet if the CC is recycling.
It shouldn't make any difference, but it wouldn't sit well with me. I wouldn't have done it just for knowing the edges of one extra cavity the air is passing. But know, LOL, that I am a stickler for wierd things....even if they have no effect. On mine I trimmed all of the raised ends/beads from both ends of; the intake pipe__the turbo outlet pipe__and throttle body pipe. They all still seal and the transfer from hose to pipe and back again are smooth...at least in my mind it is better. See? Stickler.
You could switch the throttle body hose if you feel like repositioning the DV to the throttle-body pipe. But it's more work to make it look cleaner. Then you also need another hose from the DV to the turbo inlet.
Well the oil loss issue has been happening almost ever since I bought the car, not at the rate it is now though, it has gotten worse with the years...after I removed the PCV I didn’t notice any changes..other than the thing with noticing more oil inside the boost pipes, but taking out the PCV neither improved or worsened the oil consumption...at least not that I could notice.I will just say it...since it looks like I haven't before, you should lower the crankcase pressure. Go back to the OE PCV. By removing it, you've removed the addition of vacuum to the crankcase. The vacuum improves ring seal and reduces loss of oil. I don't think it will fix it as I still believe there are worn bits in there given the loss rate is 1L/1k miles.
