Boost pipe covered with oil and gunk...help!

After a close Inspection I noticed fresh oil leaking from these pipes. Hence the turbo kicks in after 3K rpm but goes like a rocket. No signs of turbo smoke or funny siren noise coming from the turbo itself.

Where can I find/order these parts to replace asap?


1) CV joint split caused oil/gunk all over the O/S inner front wheel and caliper

2) Lower boost pipe covered with oil

3) intercooler pipe leaking oil

All this happened today, coming back from work except for the CV joint which I'm aware of.

For parts.

I wouldn't worry about the lower boost pipe. The oil comes from the crank case breather and is harmless.

Looks a bit excessive though, i think .....like maybe a bit connection or split.

Is that gaffer tape on it too?

It does actually. I checked again and can't see any sign of boost leak, looks all dry. However, I wiped it down with a cloth to remove what was on there.

Nope, no gaffa tape it just covered with oil.

This is the image of the lower boost pipe, where oil was leaking from, oil was thick and gooey.

Mine has been filthy for ages. Very sticky and tary rather than drippy. This is just normal build up for an old car. I think the oil mist into the turbo could actually be of benefit. If it is dripping and you regularly need to top up the oil then something else may be amiss.

Looks like old virginly clean diesal engine.
As far as 100+ tkms engine might be clean.
Tighten a hose clamp a bit to make a pipe clean.
But be ready for turbocompressor refurbish.
