Yep, MANN Provent seems to be the best solution. I just bought one but I have the following concerns regarding installing it:
1. Location: probably the best would be to somehow attach it to the oil filter housing. Unfortunately for me, I already have a dieselgeek oil bypass already installed in that place. One member has installed his in the driver side behind the fog light cover. I am still debating where to install mine, I am taking in consideration installing it behind the engine block.
2 Freezing temperatures leading to clogging (I live in MI). I ahve found a company that makes a sort of electric blanket for MANN Provent to keep it warm while the engine runs, I am still researching a option to keep the hose leading to and from the Provent warm.

I wonder if there is an oil separator or anything in the valve cover that could fail and cause excess oil to go into the intake?

I think IDParts sells some kind of oil catch thingy made by Mann Hummel, might be called a provent or something like that.

Found it.
