oil in intake tract and intercooler tubes

while pulling my valve covers today, i noticed there is a few teaspoons of oil in the intercooler tubes, and some on the intake tract. Is this normal? my teacher says he thinks it is excessive blowby coming in the pcv. I thought some should be normal tho?

It's normal, especially if you have a lot miles on it.

Yea probably the GPR. If it does turn out to be that, you can get the Stancor relay that will last longer and heat up the glow plugs better, hotter, and longer. Don't remember the part number but it's in the write ups here.

Okay glad you got my write up, but GP's and GPR have nothing to do with oil in your intake, that is totally normal and doing the CCV mod will cure this. I recommend doing it on every PSD!! Here is a link any ? just PM me.

CCV Mod

Using the Stancor relay is a must and a huge improvement over the stock relay, it will get more power to the plugs but it will not extend the time the power is delivered as stated above. The time the gp's are is controlled by the PCM not the GPR. Just wanted to clear up a few things.
