Oil in Turbo system

So my hot side pipe going into the intercooler has oil built up on it at the gasket. A buddy of mine who works at the Freightliner shop said it was likely due to the turbo bearings (I could be using the wrong term here) letting oil in the boost system. He said Idle is the worst thing for turbos and that taking it out and running it WOT could get it to stop?
My questions are:
1) is this common? Can it be cured with some WOT runs?
2) if not am I in trouble?
3) if not a major issue can I just take apart the system and clean it all out?

Just bought the truck a couple weeks ago 2001 7.3L

Thanks
Dave

Look up "CCV Mod" in the 7.3l tech files. Oil in the intercooler system/intake from the CCV.

Thanks, but I did the search and came up with a lot of threads. I think due to some of the guys having "CCV Mod" listed in their signatures. Anyway can you point me to the specific thread? Sorry I am new here. Also what does CCV stand for? THANKS

Might want to discuss that with your fellow CA members... I'm pretty sure I remember a thread on here where they couldn't pass emissions testing with the CCV mod done.

Ok I will add this to the list of stuff I need to put back to stock when I have to get a smog cert. lol I know the S&B intake did not fly so when I bought it my buddy had to put the whole stock contraption back in to get the guy to pass it. What a bunch of #$%! That's part of the horsebleep we put up with to live here.

I noticed this exact same thing when I was putting my DIY intake on yesterday. I am not sure when the last time this stuff was cleaned out, cut there was a decent puddle in the boot right before the turbo.

How much is too much? And does this indicate anything wrong with the engine? Does this oil entering the turbo hurt anything?

I bit the bullet and bought the two boots that attach from the intercooler to the pipes from dieselsite. NOT cheap, but I plan on cleaning out as much filth as I can and then installing these. Will get the other four boots next month. Spendy... I may do the CCV mod or with these boots that are impervious to oil etc just leave it and perform regular clean out duty.

I don't know how much is too much, but if it was never done and your truck is over 11 yrs old I think it is safe to expect a bunch in there.
