    installed my intercooler today...

    Now I know where all my oil has been hiding!
    On a more serious note though there was a significant buildup of oil where the boost hose connects to the intercooler. I am thinking I had a boost leak. Is it common in these? No other signs of oil in that area. Anyway it was a pain in my ass cause I didn't have the right tools to cut the bumper support. the 45 degree fitting they gave me was a couple inches too long, and one of the hose clamps was missing the nut but after a few hours its finally in, just waiting until tomorrow to put the thousand 8mm screws back in the bumper and trim panels. Would have been nice if the instructions were for my car but apparently the 335 is a little different and these have been discontinued a few years ago so there's no support

    I don't know how common leaks are but yes, it happens.

    You should grab a BMS OCC.

    If you had a boost leak, I'm pretty sure the car would be throwing codes.

    Yes you should install a BMS OCC, but not for this reason. That is for the reduction of carbon buildup on the intake side.
    The oil found in the FMIC comes from the turbo bearings and just sips through.
    In time this can become quite messy/sticky.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    Yeah I was planning on doing the OCC soon, at the same time I get a walnut blasting. I have been reading about PCV delete recently and have kind of been waiting until more people that did it put some mileage on the car to see how they are holding up. Seems like it may be a viable alternative. I run e85 so not even for performance reasons but even just for cleaning properties method is probably not a bad idea

    My VTT stock replacement's with the magic shafts piss oil out of the turbo bearings like it's nothing. Oil will leak out around your silicon hoses and sweat as well - this doesn't necessarily mean there's a boost leak.

    The $#@!ing hardware that came with this thing and the fitment wasn't too great. I'm forseeing boost leaks in the future anyway so I'm already planning ahead for a revamping in a couple months with chargepipe and down pipes just to kill two birds while I'm in the area
