A little bit of oil in the air side of the turbo piping is normal - it is blowby that is put into the intake from the CCV system. Typically this oil will break down the boots and cause them to either leak or come off too easily. One option is to do a CCV re-route.
As far as your problem, you may have another loose boot, or else a cracked pipe - is your pipe from the intercooler to the intake elbow plastic? The are known to crack. Also look at the boots for small holes and wear. While you are at it look at your turbo to see if the compressor wheel turns easily and see if it has excessive play.
