Default Oil leaking from chargepipe (not just residue) - 08-25-2019, 01:03 PM


I am getting really worried about this so appreciate any input.

I have a 2007 E92 335i with 42k on the clock and MHD tuned to Stage 1.

I noticed recently my oil has been going down quite fast so had a look under the car as there was nothing visible from the engine bay.

My charge pipe is leaking what looks like quite a lot of oil. This is an aftermarket charge pipe I only installed about a month or two ago. It holds Stage 1 boost well and doesn't feel it's lacking any power.

My question is why would the charge pipe be leaking so much oil? Why is so much oil getting in there in the first place?

I know a bit of oil is expected but this seems to be a fair amount.

Here is a video;

Your turbos are on the way out it seems. They're pushing oil into your chargepipe.
