Question Oil in the Intake Manifold

Every time I take my intercooler off, I notice evidence of oil in the intake system. Some will puddle on the top of the flange on the casted intercooler turbo to IC pipe. Intercooler is damp with oil too. About 6 months ago, I removed the airfilter plenum and replace it with the BMC element and disconnected the Sump vent. Where else in the intake system can oil be introduced. It causes my engine to smoke occasionally. The coupling on the cold air intake side of the turbo had oil in/on in also. So where upstream could it be coming from...?

Any ideas?
