Exclamation Oil in Exhaust

I finally put my full delete on my truck this afternoon, and after putting about 30 miles on it, I stopped to check and tighten the nuts on the band clamps for the exhaust. On the first band clamp behind the DP i noticed some oil beading up on the bolt. I would assume this has been happening for some time and I am now only noticing it because of the new exhaust. I am running a Spartan 210 Tune Deleted. Is this just normal oil from the turbo or should I be concerned? I have a 500 Mile trip next Friday and don't want any issues.

if you didn't notice any oil in the low pressure turbo outlet then i wouldn't worry about it

they coat the pipes with a light film to keep them from rusting before they're installed. the heat from the exhaust makes the oil run and the soot makes it look like engine oil. my exhaust had oil in the tailpipe for a week after i installed it
