Removing hose from oil fill to throttlebody

I notice there is more than usual oil residue inside the intake.i know the pcv valves on mustang aren't worth a **** but was wanting some feedback on eliminating the hose from oil fill to throttlebody.anyone have some input?

You could always put an oil filter catch can on. Or even filter breather cap(s). But that really just gonna help with crank case pressure.

+1, how much oil, there should be some in there. Why do you feel there is too much? Breathers are the only way to remove that hose.

I think that the pcv valve would take the crankcase pressure and be fine if I capped off the hose.the hose was full of oil build up and I think that would eliminate some of the oil getting into the intake

There's always gonna be some oil in the intake. If there is more than usual, you may have a bigger problem, and removing that hose isn't going to fix an underlying issue.

Gotcha. Then the best way is an oil catch can.

Have you ever changed the PCV filter/ not the PCV valve but the actual PCV filter?

You can clean the PCV screen no doubt but it seems for all the trouble and everything I've read over the years you're actually better off replacing the PCV screen.
