Dust in my intercooler!

l have an 84 3.2 turbo, l built the system myself about 2 years ago. The intake to the turbo was an area l really wasn`t too happy with since there isn`t much room down there for plumbing.l fabbed up some thin wall alloy tubing and snaked it up into the rear fender well,intending to add an external intake on the fender ala` 997 turbo S. l used a K&N filter.The results? not good. As l`m still refining the system l have cause to disassemble things (Thankfully) and upon removal of the intercooler l found the entire intake system has a thin coat of dust,from the turbo to the TB and beyond. l dumped the oil and have cleaned out the plumbing but l won`t run this system again in it`s present state.l`ve heard the K&N bashing before and dismissed it but l`m not too happy with them right now.
