Oil In Intake????

Ok guys need some insight here please!! I took my intake elbow off this weekend & tapped it for my boost gauge. I noticed some oil in it & alot of oli in the intake manifold where the EGR Valve sits!! I poped the hood tonight and noticed some oil creeping it way into my boost line.. Where is this sh!t coming from, why is it there, & has anyone else had this problem??? Thanks for the help guys!!!

It comes from the crank case vent line on th eleft valve cover,goes through the turbo,into the intercooler and back in the engine. Apparently this is normal for a 6.0l but alot of people on here are venting the crankcase to atmosphere or they are routing it into a catchcan where they can dump it periodically.Do a search for more info on this. P.S if you take off your intercooler lines be preparred to have them blow off on your next trip. The oil from the C.C.V gets on them and they slide off. Seems to happen mostly when you remove them to work on the engine.
I would do the C.C.V mod asap...I know I am! Hope this helps.

P.S Arent you the one with the 08 tail lights? If so they look cool!

The oil in there is normal. Just like the guy said above do the CCV kit and it wont be there anymore. Theres plenty of good kits available and there not that expensive.
