Ford Lightning Question

I'm working on a buddies 04 Lightning today doing the brakes and he also said the truck is sluggish in power so I cleaned his air filter first thing and it was bad (K&N) but I noticed the throttle body is slobbering oil any suggestions

itsa common deal on blown motors... i get sum in my intake too and i got a pushrod motor with centrifugal supercharger. i agree it's prolly the pcv. i seen somewhere that they make a resevoir tank that runs in line with the pcv and catches the oil before it gets to the blower.

im not a twin screw expert, but im pretty sure you are gonna have to take the blower apart and get the oil out. unless someone else in here chimes in with a better suggestion or advice.

i read the stuff in a tech article a while back, so now i check my pcv once a month, but i still have to empty the intake from time to time.
