Will, this looks normal to you?







Also after I put everything back together my boost gauge is not functioning properly. In order to move the boost gauge it seems like I have to give it quite a bit of gas. If I give it just a little bit (like normal) it doesn't go up. Couldn't see anything wrong with how I reassembled everything.

It looks like it could be coming from the PCV passage.

Another thing I notice is the lack of carbon build up in the LIM. I think the oil is keeping it clean and has been leaking for a while.

LIM gaskets job was only a few months ago. The LIM was put into a parts washer and the result was a very clean LIM The oil was not present when we took it apart then.

I may just buy another PCV. They are cheap.

WillWren, I would like to get your opinion on those pictures if you don't mind. Also how is it said to be normal? Thank you!

Absolutely normal. That is the expected amount of oil in there considering the time since your last gasket change/cleaning.

Oil and EGR gasses normally flow through the LIM by factory design.
