Oil on Turbo Piping

I have a 2001 Ford Excursion that I bought approx 6 months ago with 61,000 miles. I have not cleaned the engine yet. There is a fair amount oil residue at each of the flexible connections on the turbo piping. Is that normal?

I did a quick search but could not find the CCV mod reference. What is that?

BTW - I now have 66K miles on the X.

CCV Mod!!

Thats the thread on where you can get it and maybe a little about it. Basically reroutes the oil so that its not in your boots. It goes through a tube and down into a canister that you empty about every oil change or so.

Type in 7.3 CCV mod in the search and you should get quite a bit of info.

Ford ties in the vent on the passenger side valve cover the (CCV) to the cold air intake through a small tube, which in turn runs through the turbo, through the intercooler, and in to the engine by that time its usually blowing by your orange tubes that are wet. Poor Design.
