Oil in the Intake

I just installed a banks high ram intake on my 2006. Is it normal to have oil in the intercooler tube leading to the intake? My truck runs like crap until it's warmed up.

Is it possible to re-route the crankcase vent? I have oil residue all over the intake boots between the turbo and intercooler. I don't see how oil is going to vaporize in the intake, so I would like to dump it on the ground. My 24V Cummins had a bottle and it was suprising how much sludge would accumulate in 3K miles....it got a hose extension so it would blow out on the ground.

I was going to post the exact same thread tonight. I too just installed a banks high ram intake and found oil in the boost tubes. Seems a little unnerving to me, but I'm not a mechanic. Also, can someone tell me what the device is on the top of the intake, just between the oil and fuel filters? Looks like two bolts fasten it to the intake. The portion of it that extends into the intake is covered by a good coating of soot, almost 1/8" thick. Is the best way to clean it to remove the bolts and pull it out, or should I not worry? I'm assuming this is thanks to the EGR, right? Thanks guys in advance. Oh yeah, it's a 2006 6.0.

You mean the EGR valve? keep it clean!
