That oil is most likely cause from the PCV system, it dumps oil fumes in the turbo, and the oil accumulates in the Innercooler. The boots and clamps on the innercooler are not a perfect seal, so some oil is pushed out under turbo pressure.

Many just reroute the PCV system, so the oil fumes are dumped under the truck. No more problems and the engine stays much cleaner.

Yep- just reroute the PCV system, so the oil fumes are dumped under the truck. No more problems, and the engine stays much cleaner. Many vendors have a kit to do this.

You should also inspect the boost hoses for holes or leaks, and retorque the clamps.

I moved this, it is not a 911 problem.
