Breather Box Tube
Last weekend we found that the breather Box tube (should be clear) is actually black. So it appears oil has made its way into the tube and then most likely the breather box. I think there was thread on this somewhere but I have searched and searched and cannot find it.
So what else should I be checking (supercharger, intercooler)?
We haven't noticed a change in the performance of the ski (and have put another 20 hours on it).

I guess what I am asking is since I found some oil in the breather box tube, will there be oil in my intercooler (or anyplace else it shouldn't be)?

If I were you I would check the intercooler & intake tubing. Get very familar with the proper way to determine (check) oil levels.

You are right, I have a lot to learn about the flow of air/water within this supercharged beast. To be honest I don't have a clue.
I will be diving in to check the intercooler in the next week. My greatest fear is not being able to put it back together. And yes, I just got my service manual.
We now monitor the oil religiously and keep the oil at the appropriate levels. Therefore, any oil that made its way to the breather box occurred before we got a handle on this problem and potentially even by previous owner.
The OCMS will be my next purchase as we are still getting GIO. Hoping the crankcase breather hose will make a difference as we already have a loop in the hose that goes from the catch can to the oil pan.
