I finally got around to pulling the throttle body and intake manifold off, and I found alot more oily residue than I anticipated. I'm halfway through cleaning everything up and wanted to share these pics. I'll be investing in a catch can very soon and looking into the possibilities of an EGR delete option.

need a catch can and replace your PCV valve.............
Your making more crank case pressure and aren't bleeding it off good enough...............
The catch can will take the oil vapor and run it into a can..............the oil droplets fall out into the can and the vacumm continues the loop........
Its a cheap, easy, and age old trick.
PS...............Steve and I also cut that tube back so its not in the way of flow...................we cut it about 1/4" from the first bevel you come to. This ensures it still seals without impeeding flow.
Well.....for all the people that were wondering where the Intake manifold seals sat on the intake ports on the Mopar heads there's your answer.
Damn John......thats disgusting.
Get that catch can asap!

Hmmm, that 1/4 inch of misfit/overlap on the lower portion of the intake looks very similar to what I had on the 6.1 head with plastic intake.

those look very 6.1 portish.
I am not mistaken in that the 5.7 is a skinny vertical port and the 6.1 is a more square port ?
Rob has the shapes correct...............the shapes can also be seen side by side in the FRI Production Works thread........
If the 2 ports were proper, you'd have huge fitment issues.............while these don't seem to match up well, they're still further away from 6.1 intake shape.
I would think a simple gasket match on the head would be smart..........stick with the 5.7 intake IMO.
I mention the PCV because I think the inner seal are weak and allow the oil vapor to pass..............
Hey, guys, forgive the question from the uneducated (but mechanicaly minded)...
what causes this? I understand the concept of the catch can, but do the 5.7's do this stock or is it because of some mod you have made?
