Oil on my hood?

I raised my hood today and I noticed there was oil on my hood. It was at the very bottom of the hood..... the part closest to the cab. It lookes like it was misted on the hood. I also noticed the top of the motor was greasy looking. But the greasy stuff looks like its been there a while. Is this normal or do I have a leak somewhere? Also I just install an sct x3 with innocative tunes. I havent had my hood up in a while though.

99.99% of the time its the blue boot on the turbo that has started to split or has become loose.

That would make sense because it is all crackly looking, but why would it be oil. Wouldnt it just be air blowing out? Where would be the best place to buy them?

There is always a small amount of oil in the cac system. If your truck is under 5 years or 100,000 miles its a warrenty item. I think there around $45 but dont quote me on that. They may be more. Unless you are under 36,000 miles its gonna be a $100 deductable so you could just go buy one and change it out.

I have like 1500 miles left but I just got the sct so i dont know if that will void it or not. So buy them at the ford dealership and install them myself?

psd

you need to do the ccv mod.so the oil dont go in the intercooler and boots.
then clean boots with brake cleaner or something that will cut grease and oil.
just look up ccv mod for 6.0 powerstrokes.

I have had a similar problem. Is this a blue boot at the turbo or a blue boot right at the intercooler on passenger side?

Both of them are pretty greasy. But the oil on my hood appears to be coming from the one coming out of the turbo...... I think
