    As far as the catch can, you can vent the PCV system ahead of the turbo (which is always lower than atm. pressure while the car is running) which will probably help the fouling problem (lower crankcase pressure helps to keep oil from blowing by the piston rings). If there's no crankcase breather at all I'm amazed you haven't blown a seal yet.
