Burning oil

Hey guys. My cobra is burning oil, and I need help. I originally assumed valve seals, since I hear these cars are notorious for that... But my exhaust doesn't smoke on a cold start. The only time I really notice smoke is during WOT. This leads me to believe it is a PCV problem. I think my intake is sucking oil in at WOT through the PCV system. Would removing the current system and replacing it with a catch can push-in filter system potentially fix this? Anyone have experience with this? Thanks.

Re: Burning oil

This one:

Black Mustang JLT Oil Separator (99-04 Cobra) JLTOS-FMC9904-B - Free Shipping!

It whistles fairly loudly, which made me think I had a vacuum leak somewhere at first (because I installed my intake space the same evening). but I no longer have smoke in my exhaust, even at high RPMs WOT... so this thing works great! I've driven only 100 miles with it, and there's already a little oil in the can.
