Oil Buildup

I have noticed alot of oil buildup on the tubing coming up to my turbo. Would suspect a leak somewhere or is that normal? It is also down by the intake of the motor on some of the wire harnesses. Its not alot but you can tell there is a residue on them. Is this something I should worry about.

Thats from the crank case ventilation it is routed to the intake side so you end up with and oily mess in the intercooler pipes and intercooler. There is a ccv mod to reroute it away from the intake. I think its in the 7.3 tech files.
