Oil caked in intake problem??

Im new here and to PowerStrokes.
I just bought an f250 4x4 with just over 290k(no leaks anywhere). Its all stock, no smoke, starts good and runs good. I went to replace the air filter(which was in poor shape, no oil on it though just dirty.) Anyway, I decided I was going to check the turbo for play, in the process of doing this, I discovered what I thought was an excessive amount of oily greasy chunky buildup starting from where the breather box is, down to the turbo. The turbo also has some very fine knicks on the fins, but no play.

I am trying to decide if I should sell this truck before it starts giving me major problems. I was thinking on doing minor performance mods, but not if it will make matters worse.
Thnks for any input/help

no problems with the oil it is normal from the crank case vent down to the turbo you can re route it under the truck and plug the hole in the intake
