Oil in IC pipes

So, I know I'm gonna have some oil in the IC pipes with an old turbo, but when I was puttin a new one on today, I found this in the pipe FROM the IC...



And I'm thinkin that's bad...

So, big brain please tell me how bad. Do I need to pull my IC and drain it?

Just seems like oil wouldn't make it that far without something bein bad wrong.

Did I fix it when I replaced the turbo? I KNOW I KNOW, that the TN is not the greatest thing to run... It'll never see over 350 hp. I promise.

So please don't turn this into a TN bash...

On note, I replaced the turbo because I got a good deal on the TN, not because it went out or had noticeable problems. Other than the usual surge.

Yeah, I've seen this on every IC pipe I've ever had off. (And that's hundreds) At first I thought the same thing.. this is bad... but in the end it's normal.

On a side note.. the amount of oil that does go through the IC in my opinion is a huge reason the EGR's coke up so bad.

Right on man. Thanks!

I don't have an EGR, but I do have an ugly engine thanks to this... Well, partly thanks to this...

Blow-by gets run back thru the intake, so some oil is acceptable. You'll know when a turbo oil seal has gone bad... will smoke like a freight train and oil will come out the exhaust!

If there wasn't oil in my IC or CAC...

I'd be worried.

Alright cool. Thanks guys. I guess I won't try to blow out or drain my IC. My first thought was, that IC has got to be about half full for oil to be gettin up here.

I didn't think I was using that much but hey???
