Maybe oil from PCV going thru your intercooler and its leaking at a boot?:confused:

Check the intercooler connections and see if there is any oil residue on them

Just Had A Similar Problem With My 07.5 Lmm, Found That The Lower Intercooler Rubber Coupler Had Slipped Off The Lower Elbow At The Bottom (just A Small Hole) And Every Night I Would Have A Couple Of Drops Of Oil On The Floor! Loosened Off The Band Clamp, Pushed Rubber Back On And Re-tightend, No More Oil!!
