Oil on boost tube boot?

I recently noticed oil on the bottom of my tube coming from the turbo to the IC. Its only on the boot. Is this normal or do I have a problem. I recently had an EGR delete and ARP studs put in. Also the ford dealership put in the new HPOP fitting.

The oil is from the CrankCase Ventalation (CCV), oily gases exit the CCV and get put thru the air intake tube right before going into the turbo. These oily gases are ment to be sent thru the Inner Cooler (IC) system and back into the motor. Over time oil will puddle up in the IC system, and soak into the IC boots. The boots will deteriate over time and rip or blow apart. You can solve this by doing a CCV mod which vents this out to the atmosphere or you can buy a CCV filter canister. If you do this mod, you will still have oil in the system, but you won't create any more. If you need to replace your IC boots, you can buy aftermarket ones that will not soak up oil and cause a rip or blow out.
