Have some oil collecting at the connection between the turbo and the intake. It appears to be coming from where the rubber connection is made on the intake side. I keep the engine bay pretty clean so noticed it right away. I did clean it off but after driving it a few miles there was more oil.
Truck runs fine with no noticeable smoke or anything.

What do ya think?

Bad Wastegate

I Have the same problem. A freind with the sane engine saw it and said its a sign that the wastegate might be going. Also said when it does go it blows a lot of smoke.

I might be reading your post wrong, but oil in the intake tube is NOT a sign of wastegate or solenoid problems. Some oil in the intake tube is normal. read the FAQ and perform the recommended tests to help narrow down what is broke if anything at all
