Default Brown liquid from intake?

Hello guys, I finally started my 2jzgte engine on my car to see if it's good, it ran great except that, after a little while, I saw brown liquid (like oil/coolant mix. Coming out of the intake tube that connect from the turbos to the intercooler. The engine only has oil in it right now so I'm kind of confused lol, though I've been informed that people tempt to power wash this engines before we buy them... I would like to know, is this a serious issue?

There is no PS fluid in it yet, but it's going to be red.

Sounds like possible blow by. check your PCV system (hoses/PCV valve). How many miles on the motor???? My 7MGTE on my first supra had the same issue. It had about 230,000 and was on the way out......The brownish color usually comes from a mixture of oil and water from the blow by. A catch can helps out with the issue too.....

If they power washed it, then that's just water that probably got in through the intake and mixed with the oil coming from the PCV valve that more than likely you need to change.
