Thread: Oil in intake

  1. #1

    Oil in intake

    I know the intake is designed to take the oil blow by vapor into the engine. When removing the intake and supercharger it looks like everything is coated in oil. Is this normal?

    The engine appears to run fine without any issues. I do plan to replace intake system with oil catch can, and probably a large can based on the amount of oil.

    Perfectly normal if you aren't running a catch can. It's a good idea to run a catch can on these skis. More info on this thread
