Vector isn't the breather attached to the valve cover? Blow by would force it back to the crank case which should end up in the oil pan. If blowby is your worry i would open the breather and put your finger on there. If its blow by you should feel the air coming out on its own. Now if there is oil in the exhaust than that would/should be blowby. Blue smoke from your tail pipe indicates oil is entering +a cylinder(s) because of worn piston rings.

see this link
"TIRED ENGINE
One of the first concerns is the health of the
engine. Do we have a tired old engine allowing
the blow-by gases to pressurize the crankcase?
If so, the pressure would force the oil up the
PCV breather hose and contaminate the PCV
breather filter and air filter."
