Want to figure a better system, if possible. First need to understand why it's happening, and if it's normal, or not.
Where are the taps?

Where are the taps? Is there some form of baffle incorporated?

See post #13. The oil fill tube goes into the timing chain area at front of block. There is no baffle.

Let's see!
You got an intake that won't seal cause the block and possibly heads have been shaved but the intake hasn't been cut to fit the changed angles.
You got a road draft tube hooked to the aircleaner that's putting oil into the cleaner.
You got a pcv on the oil fill tube but it's not connected right now.
You got high crankcase pressure pushing oil into your cleaner and into the intake ports cause of the mismatched sealing surface.
It's a no brainer!
Cut the intake to fit the angles and get your pcv set up right.
Burn us off a pic of your set up!!

If you want to use the PCV it might be time for some new valve covers. I know the Corvette covers are nice, but these have GM type oil baffles and cast in oil drippers like the 1970 LT1 aluminum covers. Don't let the picture fool you, they don't have the oil fill cap, I drilled it myself, but no matter since you have the oil tube on the intake. Maybe something to think about?
