oil leak from intercooler boot

Have a dumb question for the knowledgeable. A month or so ago i was driving along when an inter cooler boot on the passenger side blew off. I babied it a couple of miles to a shop and borrowed the tools to put it back on. I now have an oil leak that seems to be coming from the drivers side inter cooler boot. Would I have messed up the turbo when the boot blew? I can't see anything else on the drivers side that would be leaking oil in that area; Assuming it is the inter cooler boot, it has to be the turbo correct?

Oil is normal in the IC pipes, it comes from the crankcase ventilation system on the drivers side valve cover. This is a common problem with our trucks, I wouldn't be concerned about the turbo. You may want to look into doing the ccv mod, it will eliminate the oil in you pipes and help keep your engine cleaner. You might also want to take all of your boots off and clean them off good that will help prevent boost leaks.

I had cleaned mine out when i did the glow plugs, i'm guessing that i didn't get the boot seated all the way when it blew. I had a little bit of oil that i would consider normal, but I now have a steady leak onto the frame rail and down. It has never done this before, and i think it is alot more than it should be.
