when i bought my truck (about 5000 mi ago) i didnt think much of it but now am kinda wondering why the intake side of the turbo housing is wet or oily it is where the two ic pipes come up to to the turbo im more or less just wanting to make sure this isnt going to cause me a problem down the road that would result in like a blown turbo or something that would leave me stranded

thanks in advance brett

the crank case vents in right infront of the turbo... this sends oil through the turbo and into the intake of the motor. The oil gets caught in the boots and leaks out... perfectly normal... You can do the CCV mod to fix that if you like. real easy to do

I made mine for about 20 bucks and works like a charm.
