    Clean well the area, run the car for a few days/weeks and check if it came back.

    that's pretty close to the return lines for the turbo. Follow the silver tube to the inlet and inspect for leakage. that was were my car leaked and my sa told me that is a common area to have leaks occur.

    These lines? If so I didn’t see any leaks.



    Here is an undershot of the intake tube to the turbo.
