    Make sure that the oil drainback for the turbo isn't kinked and it's nice and smooth to let the oil drain back without getting pressurized.

    Oil in the intercooler means that the oil pressure in the turbo has pushed past the seals in the tubo, and put oil in the compressor housing, and then it gets stuck in te intercooler.

    HTH.

    right-
    remeber, there is little to no pressure after the turbo... you need to rely heavily on gravity to take it back into the pan.
    so make sure your return isn't aiming up, and that the tap in your pan is in the proper place- as high as it can be so its not trying to return the oil under oil kinda...
