Oil in intake after throttle body

Pulled the intercooler tonight and found some oil puddles. Motor doesn't smoke or use oil. The intercooler was also covered in oil. No performance loss either. I think 100 hours on it is all but running stage 3 for since break-in. Anybody else ever pull the intercooler and see oil?

Re: Oil in intake after throttle body

Blow by is normal. That is why auto companies manufacture catch cans and oil separators. I'm sure you could put one in the rzr if you wanted to, never thought of it but may be worth it on the turbo model to stop the intercooler and piping from getting oil in them, although I'm not sure how effective it would be since the rzr is bouncing around 20 times more than a street driven car.
