Oil at intecooler

I have noticed some oil build up at the top of the intercooler inlet tube when pulling the IC. I have also noticed some at the airbox. Someone mentioned valve guides or turbo seal. Can you elaborate?

how much oil are we talking about? Some oil will make it into there through the vent lines coming from the tank normally.

Is there excessive oil smoke upon startup from oil sitting in the headers? My car had a bad oil leak/smoking issue where oil would drain down from the tank to the turbo and the headers. When I would start it after sitting for a few days there would be excessive oil smoke burning out of the exhaust and oil blown up into the IC. It turned out to be a bad oil return tube in the tank.

The amout of oil in the upper rim of the tube from the turbo to the IC could probably be soaked up by a few cue tips. Nothing too drastic. I don't experience any smoking. I will say that my airbox was modified and reworked to recieve a K&N air filter which made for a spot where oil can build up in the bottom corner of the housing. I would have to say that after a full season of driving (relatively aggressive) there was a small puddle which I soaked up with the corner of a rag. Again nothing overwhelming but it is there.
