I also thought it was strange that it was not depicted in the diagram, after sjf911 pointed it out for me.

I'm back from the garage. The air box, the hose from the oil filler neck to the air box and the tube from the left side plenum, are all coated in a thin film of residual oil. The oil seems to have been there for quite some time as it is quite dried out.

If it was a overfill at some point, wouldn't the oil in the IC have disappeared by now?

My option here seems to be to clean out the IC and hoses, check the flow and just drive to see if
A) it smokes.
B) it smokes and the IC fills up once again.
C) no smoke. A possible overfill at some point.

I had the exhaust off last year and checed for play in the turbo wheel. It seemed to be alright at that time. It was a smoker at that point also.

If A or B is correct, I assume the turbo rebuild is due...or maybe a 7200 hf is in order.
