confused and worried

was putting in a oil temp sensor today into the bung at the 3rd cylinder
while doing this i took off a hose
it was tunning from middle back of the intake manifold and enters a t junction that leads to the main air intake of the turbo (bit that runs under the manifold)(what bob changed not so long ago) and into the block
anyway noticed some oilly vapour/oil and some creamy gunk like a gasket has blown gunk

now there is no oil loss no water loss no other signs of gasket failure no overheating absolulty nothing

why is it there the only other thing was we used some 10k boost awhile ago sprayed into the manifolod and turbo intake (could it be this)

thinking of the mechanics the hose must be a breather hose from the block as there is no clips holding it on and it is fed from the cold air intake ??? any ideas

As per pm's - this is normal for the crankcase breather.

You should see Audi's and Vw's their breather hoses are full of the crap worse cars I've seen it in, might be worth to clean it out best you can
