should I be concerned?

Hello all.

I just replaced my air filter with a H&B Cold air intake. When I removed the old filter assembly it was very difficult to remove from the turbo. There was quite a bit of sticky oily substance inside the air tube and at the inlet of the turbo. The truck has 69k miles and has been stock until now. I deleted, tuned and added the CAI. What caused the residue and should I be concerned. Should I attempt to clean the inlet of my turbo? If so with what?

Normal. That oil is from the crankcase which is why there are tons of crankcase mod threads (ccv). Take a shop towel or rag and spray some brake cleaner on it and wipe off the residue. Check your turbo every now and then. It could be a bad turbo leaking oil but I doubt it.
