Isnt the injectors mounted in the intake manifold ?

Oil during engine operation isnt a big factor , but once engine is shut off the oil will dry and if this is done often enough without running some inj.cleaner it will disrupt the flow of gas.(not much though , but could eventualy cause missfire in an extreme scenario)

Since the CCV is cut out when running boost you dont have the oil / oil vapours seperated , all of them gets sucked in...
