Wet Intake Manifold AFTER EGR Delete

ok, put in an 03 turbo and had the intake elbow out, i noticed inside the intake manifold that it was pretty wet/oily.

i did an egr delete a couple months back, and i've since switched to cat ELC, haven't lost any coolant or had any white residue around the degass bottle. when i did the delete, i cleaned the intake manifold good with carb cleaner and let it dry before i reinstalled it. there was still some carbon inside but it was very minimal and there was definitely no wetness.

any ideas what's going on inside my truck?

could it be from the turbo seals leaking?

That's what I am thinking but you would notice your oil level dropping.

How about your CCV? Have you modded its dumping location or is it still stock?

Is there oil buildup in your intercooler?

would i have to pull the intercooler to be able to check for oil buildup?

No, you could just pull off the hot side pipe and look in with a flashlight.

Also, is there any color or smell coming from your exhaust?

i was getting a lot of white smoke on cold starts but that was from llosing the #4 injector, it was replaced and then the rest smoke was from injector stiction and it cleared up with rev x.

so now, no smoke on cold starts but i do have a strong odor smells like oil/fuel. burns my nose/eyes when i get close to the exhaust haha.
