Angry ahhhh coolant leak

Hey guys! Did the EGR delete, coolant oil filter and oil cooler on my 2004, 6.0. Also did the front cover gasket because of a small oil leak. Ran great for a few weeks then developed a coolant leak. First the coolant leak showed up on the passenger side right over the starter. Traced it up into the valley, sure enough wet. Checked the new egr delete tube- dry. Cleaned up the valley and pressure tested the system. Noticed a line of coolant coming down the right side of the cooler from the front. Flowing along the front of the oil cooler from drivers side to apss side. Managed to trace it back to back of the connector on the front cover for the heat hose. Beyond that, can't see it. Checked upper and lower hoses, dry. I'm thinking the doughnut between the intake and front cover?
