Oil in cold-side tube

Did the Blue spring update last night and first of all wanted to thank everyone for the info on the .ORG That was the first real work I've done on this truck besides filter changes, and having all the info on here gave me some great tips.

So, as part of that, I removed the cold side tube for access and there was some oil inside the tube. Is that normal? Where did it come from? Is that a sign of something else that I need to watch out for?

Thanks!

The crankcase ventilates into the intercooler tube, which is the source of the oil. If you want to get rid of it, you'd have to do the CCV mod.

At least that's what I've read here. I found that my CAC was well-oiled when I blew it off a couple weeks back
