Had oil pushing everywhere on a 2.5L 89. First I had too much oil in it then a valve cover gasket, then the dipstick wasn't seated all the way. Had new lines to vacuum and PCV . Still get some oil show in the air box.

Once I had the proper amount of oil it all stopped leaking, oil pressure at speed was 70 psi.

89 2.5 TBI, 4" RC lift, 1" Booms, SYE, Adams Driveshafts front and rear, Ford 8.8 with 4:88s, BFG 33X12.50X15, and a ton of other stuff.

also make sure there isn't any gas getting into the oil. The float can stick in the carb and flood it when not running. If your oil seems to go up without you adding any, this would be why
