    Specs -87 6.2
    gm 8 turbo w/ heath diesel boost controller

    My problem is the crankcase is getting pressurized and causing some oil leaks, when you pull the oil fill plug if sounds like your opening a soda. I used the factory 6.2 pcv canister that runs from the oil fill to the intake. What is the easiest fix for this problem, use the pcv valve off of a 6.5 or some another boosted motor. I am clueless on how the 6.5 is set up so any help on this would help.

    I think I found my problem, I ran the canister from the oil fill to the intake when it needs to go from the oil fill to the intake before the turbo. Like an idiot I was sending boost directly to the crankcase.
