resonance tube

hello. i am in the process of 'learning' my recently acquired 2000 S. on a tour through my engine bay i noted that everything was really clean except there looked to be a slight accumulation of oil and black soot on my resonance tube, in and around the vacuum valve location. is this normal? thanks, trk.

It is kind of normal...

... because the tubes have mold seams that allow oil to leak out.
A small amount of oil coming from the Air/Oil separator is OK, but if it's excessive then the A/O Separator needs replacing.
Check your throttle body and the inside of the intake plenums for oil.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro
