oil leaking from charge pipe

I havent thrown any codes yet but i was looking around in my engine bay and noticed that there was an oil leak coming from underneath the metal ring (the side towards the front of the car) on the charge pipe. its not dripping oil but if i run my finger underneath it, I get some oil on my finger.

Is this normal
(no codes have been thrown yet)

Not good.
Charge pipe meaning where the diverter valves are?
If so, get a catch can to catch all of the oil that is spraying all over your IC and intake area.

Thats what the catch can mod is for to reduce the oil in the intake, which eventually will get into IC...Get a CC as soon as possible! How many miles on the clock?

Alot of people have experienced what you have with the oil residue..I had some oil residue that i saw on connection of my Forge DVs to the charge pipe before I installed the catch can...Its normal and I would not think a visit to the dealer would be necessary...WHen I saw that oil and read up on the benefits of the CC, I ordered one and installed it ASAP...
