Default oil on intake side of turbo

Had to pull the intake up to the turbo and found this little pool of oil. The intake was also oily inside.



-Is this normal?

-Where does it come from?

A little bit of oil is fine. If you have a smokescreen behind you when accelerating that's not good.

If no other symptoms u can disregard it .. its coming from the PCV hose at the top of the turbo intake .
