Oil leaking from turbo elbow??

Hey guys. I was putting in a fuel pressure guage the other night when I noticed some oil residue on my intake and found that it was coming from the blue elbow thingy on my compressor side of the turbo. Connection on the braided turbo oil line is good but it's wet and oily on the bottom part of that blue rubber thing. There shouldn't be any kind of oil there should there? Any suggestions. Thanx

Its normal, its just blowby from the crank case vent. The vapors collect and make a puddle, which makes a mess and lubricates the boots so they conveniently blow off at elevated boost levels.

Your options are to clean every thing out periodically or do a CCV mod. If it wasn't 3:30 am local time id go into more detail on that.
