    Default Oil misting in intercooler pipes....

    Gents, in the quest to find reasons for my late 2005 y30 shaking like a crappin' terrier. i noticed today that the two hoses to, and from the intercooler have a fine mist of oil in them, as does the mouth of the turbo. Problem???. Also the main boost pipe from the i/c to the air intake plenum "bulges" when revved at idle...is this normal?

    The oil is normal mate. A small amount anyway.

    as for the pipes blushing how much do they bulge? They should fill up a bit and harden due to the air pressure at boost

    it swells visibly by about 10-15 mm across its diameter.

    Hmmm Yeah that is quite a lot.
    do you have a way to check what it's boosting at?
    On another note for the shaking Have you got any noise coming from DMF?

    Only noise is a slight rumble on release of clutch pedal. Much like good old release bearings in the good old days before laptops overtook spanners....no other clutch issues, or noises.
