    AAHH! Oil out the BOV!!!

    Ok, so I checked my oil when I gassed up at lunch and theres a little bit of oil on my BOV. it is aftermarket. Not a lot but enough that I can see it, looks like its coming out of the blow off. There's no excess spray anywhere else, just in the 'cone' of the blowoff valve.... Bad seal? Bad Turbo? I don't know what to do?

    Could be a lot of things, it just points out that you have plenty of blow-by. How much oil is in your intercooler?

    Check to see that the PCV is working. That's the cheapest potential problem.
