911 Oil Leak!

Ok driving home from work my boost gauge was whistling like the fitting was loose. Pulled it out and it was loose but there's oil on the line! Boost is tapped into intake elbow like every company shows you to do. What is this? 2005 F250 4x4, 4" turbo back cat and muff delete, sinister diesel coolant filter kit, Zoodad mod, boost, egt, feul psi gauges. Other than that it's stock. Someone let me know it's not a major issue. Kinda freaking out!

Yup. Your ccv dumps oil vapors into the intake which coats everything from the turbo to the intake valves....

It's normal. Doing something about it is up to you. There's a ccv mod that some do to keep the oil out of the intake. Just search ccv mod or ccv reroute.
