    Default Whooshing, Oil & Smoke

    Hi Guys. I've had a whooshing noise for some time now, coming from under the bonnet when flooring when pulling away. This whooshing has gotten worse recently. It happens under normal acceleration now. Today, on my way back from work smoke began occuring!... black i think, maybe with a bit of blue. I took it to my local garage and instantly the young lad piped up. BOOST PIPE! He reckoned i've got a split boost pipe. Upon opening the bonnet i found fresh oil here.....

    Right infront of the radiator on the inner bumper lip.
    He suggested to me that there might be some oil being fed into the boost pipe. Is this so? and is it normal? Also where is the boost pipe that might be split?

    Just looked underneath and the plastic tray has a fair bit of oil on it as if something has burst. Is it replacement intercooler time or is there a fix?
