Blowby in intercooler pipe and intake.

I took off the intercooler pipe to work on my power steering pump along with my intake tube. I noticed a considerable amount of oil in the intercooler and a very small amount in the intake tube. Is this normal? I have read that it is but still not sure. Seems like a pretty large amount of blowby.

Some is normal - "Normal" depends on how many miles that are on your truck. Remember the CrankCase Ventilation deal is in the intake just before the turbo (driver's side valve cover) so anything vented from there gets sucked into the turbo and pushed into the intercooler/tubes/boots.

Thats not blowby. Its either what was mentioned before (CCV) or a horribly leaking turbo. I'm voting its simply the CCV and very normal.
