    Oil inside engine compartment - minor "spewing"?

    I took my ski in to have the RRFPR, TBM fuel cell, and AFR stuff installed, and while I was there we were looking inside the engine compartment and I noticed a very light mist of oil on the intercooler side of the compartment. It looks like a very light "misting" of oil on that whole side, everythng is "coated". Everything has a very, very light mist of engine oil....sorta like if you "fogged" your engine with WD40 (only I didn't do that.) I must have some sort of pressure leak coming from somewhere.
    Is there any place in particular on that side that could be "spewing" this oil?
    The oil cap is on. The dipstick is in. I did not "drip" oil in while changing the oil. It is definately "spewing", or "spraying", but only ever so slightly (can't think of a different word to describe it).
    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    The other side is completely dry.

    It's possible your oil is overfilled and blowing out the BOV on the intercooler. I over filled by 1/2 QT at my 10 hour oil change and at time i didn't have a BOV and it was all up in my riva air intake and on my supercharger wheel.

    Got any pics? Just wild guessing, but maybe a loose tensioner or the line is loose that goes to it? Could be one of a bunch of things. You sneezed oil?

    P.S Don't call BP to fix it...

    I'm pretty sure it is not from oil being over filled. I change it regularly (GIO) and I am very conscious of how much oil I have in there. Way back when, when I first realized I had GIO I was way over "full", without this problem. Now, I check, monitor and/or change my oil regularly.

    No, no pics. Its at the shop.
    "could be one of a bunch of things"....funny (and not so funny), that's what my mechanic said.

    Gesundheit!

    is your oil breather hose still connected to the air intake?
    if it is, that could explain why you would have oil in the intercooler and the air intake.
    you have GIO and you are installing a RRFPR?
    i would reccomend checking the AFR with it at static first.
    i bet you are sucking in oil from the oil breather and it might be sprayed out thru the bov!
    is there oil mist on the bov?
