oil in intake tube in front of turbo

I was replacing my air cleaner and decided to take my intake tube off and check my turbo it looked good no play in the wheel but i noticed small amount of oil in intake tube in front of turbo behind that small tube that comes into the intake not for sure if that is engine breather or what is this a problem or not a big deal? concerned maybe my oil cooler or something is not working properly.

That would be from the CCV. There's a write up on here about how to reroute it. I'm gonna be doing that tomorrow. It's nothing to worry about cooler wise

Re-route it if you want your air charge system to work properly. Oil all inside the intercooler is ridiculous. It is a pathetic design.
