I know that its an air line, that's why i'm concerned. Maybe a diverter valve failure causing this? I'm just grasping at straws!!thats one of the IC pipes. there shouldn't be alot of oil inside of that pipe.
i have zero oil around that aera of my 01 9-5 so im thinking something is amiss.
pull the hose and check inside
What do you mean by DV? My wifes car also has some oil in this area, although not nearly as bad.^correct. yeah thats an IC pipe.
could be a faulty DV for you loosing boost. check all your vaccum hoses as well. could just be that their old and rotted/torn and need to be replaced with some nice silicone ones.
Wouldn't that require an ecu?sorry to say man but i will have to go with everyone else here....its going to be your turbo for sure. that is a ****ton of oil. when i pulled my piping there was virtually no oil on the inside of the pipes.
this is the PERFECT time to upgrade to the aero td-04 turbo though
But shouldn't a rebuilt GT-17 one last another 100k?if you want aero performance yes. you can run the aero turbo without the software though, although you probably wont like it- as youll only get more turbo lag with no more horsepower.
but if you shell out the extra 100-200 now and just do the aero turbo, you probably wont ever have to change it again. they rarely fail. so if you're looking at long run cost, its cheaper to do aero turbo/ecu.
