New here w/ a question.

Hey guys,
Been hanging around here for about six months and finally decided to join. Yesterday i had to change my pressurhose for my power steering pump. So I decided to remove my intake to make some more room. Once I removed my intake I could see a liitle oil right before the turbo. Is this normal? Also how many miles do you guys go for oil changes? I have always gone 5000 miles. Thanks in advance.

Re: New here w/ a question.

Thats normal for oil to be in the intake side of the turbo, its from the crank case vent on the valve cover. As far as oil changes if you pull a lot i would do 3000 but everyday highway driving 5000 is fine. What oil are you running.
