Default forge bov leak?

just wondering if anyone else experienced this with their forge blow off valve...there is a dark colored oily substance near the vents on this blow off valve that seemed to have been squirted on the intercooler...it is not a lot however it kind of worries me...is this just some sort of lubricant in the valve itself or is something actually leaking?? ive read a post like this on clubwrx however no one could actually say what this is...i will wipe the substance off and see if it reappears..

When I had the Forge it did the same thing. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Default perfectly normal

This grease you are referring to is the manufacturing/shipping lubricant Forge puts in the valve to preserve its operational shelf life. I have been told it will blow out after about 1000 miles of use. I have a brand new forge atmosphere vent myself and it did this for a while right after installation.
