    Is there a crack in your valve cover??? That's how mine got oil on the top all the time. Especially under load it would just keep coming up. Happens usually when you over torque the bolts to the valve cover.

    Where is the oil on the valve cover? I ended up having to replace the Oil cap on mine for similar reasons.

    Leaky oil cap or maybe oil blowing out your dip stick as well. Those and like said before, cracked valve cover. Is it getting on your hood as well?

    bought a 1g a lil while back and noticed the same problem, the stock bov was vented to atmosphere but there was a bit of oil getting into the intake system so when it would blow off it would spray oil all over the valve cover.

    I also had this problem and it was a mixture of the valve cover gasket and the oil cap.

    Sounds like you are blowing your dip stick out. I used some zip ties to hold my dip stick down. Some people pinch the tube so it wont come out too easy but i wouldnt do that. You can go buy a new stick from mitsu or maybe from one of the venders here. Clean up what you can and see if you get more oil in the valve cover after fixing your dip stick.

    If it is your dipstick, I believe it is STM, sells a new dipstick tube with a piece on it that holds the dipstick down. Also, If the dipstick is to blame, check your motor for excessive blowby. It should only blow that dipstick out if there is too much backpressure in the crankcase for the seal on the dipstick to handle. Check pcv valve and system and all that stuff just to be safe and everything.
