oil in turbo inlet

I recently bought my truck, a 96 f250, and was going over it, I am not very experienced in mechanics and even less so concerning diesels, but when I found oil in my turbo inlet tube, most of it old and caked but some fresh. Is this a problem or a normal thing. Also, I never hear my turbo spool up, the truck is completely stock, the only thing i notice is in 2nd gear when it starts to hit 2000 rmps I hear a wooshing, like a lot of air is moving. Any ideas on either question?

Power is fine, its a little sluggish in 2nd but as close as i can tell it pulls like a stock engine should.

Most OBS turbos are hard to hear over the engine noise. If you add a high flow intake and filter and exhaust you will be able to hear it. When I was running my stock filter and box, I could only hear the turbo when I got close to 2500 RPM.
