Default Still Smells like oil in the cabin

I have a '99 9-5 V6 Turbo. I had the usual oil pressure switch leak which I fixed. No more leaks but I still have the smell of oil vapor in the cabin. I know the 4 cylinder has had some PVC valve issues that were addressed with an update kit from the factory. Does the V6 have such a kit. Or, is the smell coming from something else in the engine compartment?
