Just about all SRT-4s have this problem. Your PCV valve is venting your crankcase vapors to the throttle body. Getting a oil catch can will cure this. There is MANY threads on here about this, do a search on catch can. Eventually this can coat your intercooler and sensors so it is an important mod. Rezin8 did a great how to on a $20 catch can. Look it up.

In addition to what has been said. Yes it is normal and no it's not great it is something to take care of. It will also help with your blackened exhaust tips and all that grime on the back of your trunk lid.

"I still refuse to put a catch can on..."

That's just too bad then, because oil in the IC and pipes will degrade performance, so even stock SRT-4 with catch cans will be pulling on you. HAHAH

I've reduced about a quarter+ of a quart of oil from entering my intake system with about 3000miles worth of running time. You might as well pour that down you're air intake system every time you change your oil then.

i just installed my catch can not too long ago. already getting oil. ive had my car almost a year with out a catch can. is there any way/how to clean the oil out of the ic/icpipes??
some peeps have taken it off and sloshed anything from degreaser / simple green / gas / alcohol and then powerwashed the inside if it @ car washes.... When my time comes I think I will go with carb cleaner and a hot water washout followed by compressed air blowout.
