    Thumbs Down oil in intercooler pipe!????

    Right was fitting my boost gauge today as car isnt running right, thought i get a reading on the turbo (good all vaux) took my intercooler pipe off (just for a gander), insde had a heap of oil? i know i have an oil leak somewhere but not sure where, only thing worried me is that the intercooler dosnt have oil in it.well it shouldnt i belive? how could this be? anyone with similar problems? oh and the car will booost to bout 7/8 psi in 3rd but hesetates and struggles to get power down alot too (in all gears). AFM? Actuator? Boost solinoids? Help me people.

    Cheers

    check the afm, try and borrow a known working one just to check to see if it is.

    oil in the boost pipes is normal after the turbo, disconect the crank breather pipe and add a catch tank and you will have less oil in the boost pipe.
