Hey I just installed a sound symposer delete on my 2013 focus st and as I was taking the stock symposer out I noticed some oil around the gasket sealing area on the symposer itself...is this normal??? or do I have an issue on my hands???

Can't cite where I read it but it's normal. When I did my sound symposer delete it looked pretty similar to that.

It's normal. Oil vapor will exit the crankcase through the PCV valve, go through a short hose and exit right above the throttle body. The oil will then move up through the intake manifold and condense in there and some will pool where the sound symposer is, on the throttle body, etc. That's why some folks install an oil catch can between the PCV valve and intake manifold.

Then after that it will do this to the runners, bowls, valves and valve seat and the injectors.
