The PCV system seems to be inadequate to hold crankcase pressure that builds up. Many owners of stock, relatively new LT4 engines in C4s have claimed thiers exhibit this "dipstick popping out" behavior at high RPMs, so it's nothing unusual. The LT4s in particular have modified piston rings to prevent "fluttering" and letting excess blowby gasses through, but they get through anyway. I also have oil stains around my PCV valve itself, probably from high revving.

Most GM vehicles no longer have a transmission dipstick. The level is checked by removing a plug in the transmission while the engine is running. Add fluid until it comes out the the plug hole. Of course the vehicle will will have to be raised off the ground to remove the plug and must be level.
