Boost Pipes look Dirty

My boost pipes look dirty...espeially right where the foiled side attatches to the intercooler. Does this mean I have a leak, and if I do, how can I fix it?

I just did it after cleaning all the crud off and painting the IC pipes, I had alot of buildup, hoping it helps, I thought that was one of the main reason's for doing it.

After blowing off the hose closest to the turbo i did the CCV mod and it has cured the problem of oily hoses/tubes, very easy mod to do

The build up is from the CCV. If you do the CCV mod then you will be clean and pretty instead of dirty and ugly.
