Oil in the bottom of CAC - Normal?

I have a small leak of oil at the bottom of the lower end of the Charge Air Cooler where the rubber connection is. Is it normal to have some oil there?

Take a look at your intake tube... see that rubber hose that goes from the oil fill neck to the intake tube, thats your problem. If you do a CCV mod this will eliminate the oil in your CAC. They all have "some" oil in the CAC with the factory set up, its normal.
