Hey hetzle -
i've seen oil build up from the front mount intercooler as well
both n54 and n55, it's common. the build up is most likely from the
turbo - maybe someone can chime in with details.

btw, sorry to hear bout ur botch'd tune install.
read ur post.

The CP design that use the C-Clip might be prone to leakage, but at least you actually SEE the mess, I have the Vishnu CP, its certainly 100% sealed but the sensor might be covered with oil... I'll have a look.

Very interested in the intake manifold pics after 50k miles, the n55 is supposed to be a bit better on that subject (supposed better crankcase ventilation system).

Diff check - it made a big difference..
the Vishnu CP, with it's silicone hose to the T-body (design)
is a guaranteed seal - only way air will seap through
is if it pops off or u got a leak somewhere else.

I've been wanting to check out the valves - soon enough
i'll post up some pics -

also the n55 valve train - i may have some news and
issues. do you know of any know problems on the boards
from a member?
