Intake eaten by oil!

My intake, nearest the turbo, has been eaten alive by oil. I will post pics when I get back home, so I have my good camera not my junky phone one. So on to what I discovered. Since oil and plastic almost never cope well together my, post ccv, intake is very very malleable and now has some holes growing. I bet if I tried I could put my finger through it. Has anyone else seen this happen? So, soon I am going to be getting my intake I have listed in my sig, the CCV mod, cleaning the hot side CAC tube, and putting some new boots on it. I think I am going to be cheap and go with the TSC CCV mod.

Yeah, I am just saying to watch out on the stock one. They might be pretty darn amazing, for stock, but it is still a lower grade plastic that can't handle the oil from the CCV. Just letting people know that it happens. But yes I can't wait to get a new intake so i don't have to worry about this. Which AFE Stage 2 do you have? The fully enclosed MagnumFORCE or the FullMetal power that isn't enclosed?

I'm not a big fan of unenclosed intakes on something that produces high heat. And the fact that metal attracts more heat than plastic. But it definitely looks like a nice intake

With my zoodad mod and the wall that comes with the aFe it blocks most of the heat and gets air from under the truck. I can touck the intake after a hard long drive and its cool to the touch. Its aluminum mind you so it doesnt retain the heat as much as say stainless would.

Mine was starting to almost melt from the oil right past where the CCV dumps into the intake right before the turbo. Was real soft and deformed compared to the rest of the intake. Now it's not so soft just a little sticky if you put a finger nail into it. CCV is dumped under the truck now.
