Oil SPITS out of filler hole with cap removed

Had the oil filler cap off and a funnel in the filler hole and started the car. Heard and saw small droplets of oil spitting out of the filler hole. First time I ever saw this on any car. Engine is an I4 2.0L turbo. Also seemed to have positive air pressure coming out the oil filler hole. What gives?

    That would be considered normal. All cars have blow-by gasses that's why there is the PCV system. Besides, the overhead cam slings oil everywhere under the valve cover.
