    Looks like turbo inlet. Had a similar issue on my 04. I would get an aftermarket one like Perrin to replace it.

    How did you find the leak and what was leaking out of it? That's the turbo inlet. It's a pain to replace, I usually just cut it off with a torch.

    There shouldn't be an oil leak on a turbo inlet though...

    Could it be the oil feed line on the turbo itself? They are known to go, causing leaks (including the filter in the banjo bolt). Also possible the seals could be going on the turbo itself.

    The oily residue you're seeing is probably just blowby. Like Mikie said, I'd check the oil feed line.
