oil in the intercooler/leaking turbo??

Is there suppose to be any oil at all in the the pipe coming off of the turbo.I found oil in the pipe, the intercooler and the intake. Is there a seal or o-ring on the turbo that can be replaced and is it hard to do. It is a remanufactured GARRETT TURBO. 2007 F350 6.0, K&N INTAKE. 67000 miles.

A little more info

As previously stated some oil is normal, useually sucked up from the CCV filter
(crankcase ventilation filter). In older vechicles its where the PCV valve was mounted. This is a wire mesh filter and as any filter needs cleaning some times
When saturated oil can be sucked into the intake.

On the 6.0 this is externally mounted on the front drivers side valve cover, connected to the bottom side of the plastic houseing mounted between the air filter and the turbo by a short molded hose. This can be rerouted to discharge into an external can which will need to be emptied perodically.

As stated some oil is normal an excessive amount can indicate worn/broken rings leaking combustion gas into the crank case.
