A compression check would tell you for sure it's not a head gasket.
However the compression check won't show blown turbos.

The PCV clogging is new to me, but I'm glad I learned something new.
Please let us know what this problem turns out to be for you.  I'm sure
we are all curious now.

No.  Thank God.

I actually live just two minutes from the freeway, so I'm espescially 
mindful in these cold New England motors to get on slow and let things 
warm up a bit before I start boosting.
