Installed new OEM intercooler boot/connectors.

It just hit me where I set these to take the picture.

Not sure if this is a typical oil collection? I installed 4 blue boots and the two orange ones under the wye pipe. I decided on OEM, s because I like how they are formed to lock into the pipe groove for the two intercooler connecting pipes. I wonder how many of the intercooler passes are flooded with oil, is there a drain?
Ill be installing my separator tomorrow, I didn't want to do the atmosphere vent for smog reasons here in Cali.
This was done to stop my oil leak, both orange connector clamps were finger tight and soaked.

Replacing them won't help anything unless you do the CCV mod. For emissions reasons, you can get the one from Raul@StealthAutomotive made by NCHornet.
The entire system still has oil in it. I'd pull the intercooler AFTER you do the CCV mod and clean it out too.

Is it possible to simply remove the intercooler and rinse it out with a simple green solution; pour it in and slosh it around?

Yea that's what I did. Pulled it, put soap and water in there, let it sit in the hot sun during the summer and tilted it sideways, ran lots of clean water through it, and let it dry for a good long while in the hot sun to let it dry out.

what dictates if the boots must be replaced? Can they be cleaned and reinstalled?

The orange ones were probably the only ones that needed to go. They were kinda swollen and spongy. I changed all of them for piece of mind, and just about to roll 100k.

How much did the OEM boots run you, if you don't mind sharing? I'm about to get some new ones as well and on the fence about riff raff or oem.
