Oil in charge pipe

K...So I did my EGR deletes, DPF and cat deletes and Sparta tune "DAMN THING RUNS GREAT" but know I took the upper charge pipe off to access the A/C tensioner and there was some oil in it. Is this just residual from the EGR being on for 100K? You know "blow through" from the inter cooler? I'm not making or using oil. Just wanted to make sure nothing else is wrong. There are NO lights, codes etc.....

I was told by the local Ford diesel tech that blow by is caused from excessive pressures. Possibly a bad turbo bearing. Clean it out and now that you are deleted you shouldn't have to worry again.

The oil is from the Crank Case Ventilation (CCV) system. From another thread
Quote:
Ccv mod - your crank case vents into the intake which ends up pushing oil through your intercooler and into the intake system. I just blocked off the side going into the intake and vented the crank case to atmosphere by connecting a longer hose to the one that comes off the oil fill canister. Some people also use a catch can but mine seems to be working well.
If you search for CCV mod you will find plenty of info about how and why you should do it. Like this..
CCV Mod??

Thank you, for the life of me I couldn't remember CCV mod. I did mine right after I found oil in my CAC pipe when I swapped for the better MBRP vs OEM.

Being a newb I have been researching most of the bulletproofing mods, and being frugal.. CCV is one of the cheaper ones to perform..
