    Hello! I discovered a lot of oil at the Paxton intake . but the suspicions of leakage through the gland of the compressor in my opinion are not correct. pcv hose and valve show signs of oil leakage. I know that many people have a oil leakages problem on supercharger machines, and I think that this is a problem with the crankcase ventilation system. Whether prompt there is a reliable decision on system modification / valve pcv / possible to install oil catch tank? Do I think correctly that the oil enters this place through the ventilation tube and not from the compressor seal?

    If the Paxton compressor seal is leaking, you would see the oil pattern more central although it is hard to tell from your photo what is going on.

    Lots of guys running catch-cans with forced induction so, give it a try.

    Is the oil level dropping in your Paxton? If so, the seal needs replacing If not engine oil is finding its way into the blades.
