On my '02 I'm getting an oil leak at the a the upper charge air connection despite changing the O ring twice. It feels like a sloppy fit even with a new O ring. It's not excessive, just ugly.

I'm not sure what to do about it, it makes a mess below itself. I am running just fine but it makes me nervous. I could try a sealant but I hesitate.
The whole hose connection sort of hangs a little and it strikes me as a failed design?
I've taken to wrapping the joint with parer towel and tape to contain the black oil mess.
