Oil in my CAC boots?

Ok, so I decided to replace my inter cooler boots and when I pulled the cold side boots off this morning, there was oil pooled inside both of them. Not enough to run out on the ground but enough to be a little messy. Problem? I cleaned it all out and put the new boots on (Diesel Site ones). I haven't done the hot side yet, but hope to this afternoon. Will update on what I find there.

That is normal and if you want to get rid of it (many people do) then research the "CCV Mod"

I know about that mod...just haven't had the time yet. That's kind of what I thought, but thanks for confirming and easing my mind!

Finished with the hit side boots...top one is a pain!!! Overall not too bad. They are all longer than stock, so should be more bite to seal, but makes it a little harder to get in. For anyone who ordered a kit package...the bottom hot side CAC clamp is one size bigger than all the others. Pay attention!

Yup totally normal I have the Dieselsite ones as well, I like how they are longer than stock so you can double clamp them. Also the hot side ones have a red band on the end and the cold side have a blue band.

Yeah they are longer. I didn't think about double clamping them, but I could later. That top left one was a bear. All of the boots are orange striped now. I called diesel site because I was expecting the blue band ones, but he said they used all that material and now they are all the same with the orange. They are nice boots.
