I did that test at about 150,000 miles and the engine did not shut off but afterwards my oil pan started leaking around the gasket. I had to replace the oil pan gasket and it was not fun. Had to unbolt the motor and raise it a little to get to all the bolts. I don't want to do that test again.
I have my blowby pipe routed to atmosphere. I have a hose going to the bottom of the car. It drips a good bit of oil out and there is a steady stream of smoke that comes out of it. About the volume of lightly blowing out of your mouth. I used to have it go into a catch bottle, but that was too much trouble and no good place to mount it. I dumped it every oil change of 7500 miles. It would accumulate about a pint of oil in that time period.
