MASSIVE Oil Leak

Need Help Again. 04 F250 w/6.0 I think I bought a real turd. Ran 500 Miles yesterday, no problems. Sometime today it sprang a leak, a major one! Dripping like crazy from front and rear, seems to be up high. Dealership installed a new Oil Cooler & EGR Cooler last week. Leaks only while running, and take 20-30 second after start-up to leak (at least where I can see it). Any Ideas?

Ive seen on the vans were the oil filter would be the alluminum housing will crack internaly on the top and leak to the rear.On the vans you can take the doghouse off and see it,on the trucks not sure. Also Ive seen the timing covers leek and have to reseal.It all sucks to fix especialy on vans.

Does anyone know if the turbo pedestal mounting bolts go into oil passages? In other words, if those bolts don't have sealer on them, could an oil leak start?

The bolt do not go into oil passages. I had the turbo off and ran it,the only thing I had to do is block off the oil feed to run it.It will be hard to see on the trucks, but look around the oil filter thats where I found the leak on the van.

The oil feed I made plate that formed the 2 bolt feed and used the gasket between the
2.The return I coverd with tape to keep debris from going into tube.

It looks like my oil cooler is leaking. Not sure yet if its a gasket or the cooler itself.
