Thumbs down Grit in my oil!

I had the K&N filter off my Syclone and saw grit in the oil lying in the bottom of the turbo! Syclones came with a hideously constrictive intake that I ditched in favor of a K&N on the end of a short length of hose. The K&N is about 2 years old, has less than 10k miles on it, and the truck gets Mobil 1 every 3000 miles.
Has anyone else seen a problem like this using a K&N? Where else could the grit have come from?
