Default Oil Leak???

I have a 1991 1.6 Turbo Miata with a stock greddy kit on. I am currently running about 5 lbs of boost and seem to have a little oil leak. When I shut off the car I noticed oil dripping from the air filter. I have the the air filter running straight off the mass air flow in front of the turbo, instead of running up in the top right corner. Any suggestions or problems you guys have had in the past. Thanks

Take pictures and describe how you have your vacuum breather lines and what type of PCV valve you have.
