	I thought it was possible to get quite a bit of oil up into the
upper hose through the breather hose system especially when
cornering/accelerating hard and oil at or slightly above full mark. correct
me if I am wrong here.  

If I track my car with oil at full mark,   I will see a lot of oil in the
hose, at 1/4 quart low I will see very little.   

Wouldn't leaky turbo shaft seals result in oil burning up in the exhaust
most of the time.  "constant smoke show" ?

The only draw back to the samco hoses is they can get very slippery, If oil
gets into the silicone hoses they tend to slide off, even with the wide type
