S/C sucking oil out of Manifold

I just talked to Vortech and they are telling me to remove the line that feeds from the top of the manifold back to the intake. They suggest replacing it with a K&N filters. Can someone please tell me the part numbers of the filter and and adapters I'm going to need?

Before you remove it, try capping it off first. I too noticed oil on the intake side of my head unit and thought I too was sucking oil from the tube on the drivers side. After installing an air/oil separator for about a month, I noticed that it wasn't trapping any oil yet I still had oil on the intake side of the head unit. My guess is that the oil is leaking from the head unit itself.

You can't cap it. I tried that and the pressure bulidup in the manifold confused the computer and blew oil all over. Had to unplug the computer for an hour to get it to reset. It definitely needs some type of outlet. However, you may be right about the leaking. I won't know though until I put the filter on the manifold. In fact, I may have to use an oil baffle also.
