Water Leak

I have been looking around the web for some time now and have a general idea of what is wrong. I recently did a Sinister Diesel EGR Delete and everything seemed to be fine after minus a small exhaust leak that was fixed. After about a week I noticed a small drip coming from the front of the engine and the degas bottle empty. It looks like there is a small leak coming from the upper middle portion on the front of the engine. Alot of comments online mentioned it could be the oring under the manifold. I'm curious if anyone has any other ideas of where it could be coming from, or a way to check before I pull the intake out again. Trial and error isn't the way I want to go when it comes to the manifold.

If you are talking about the front of the engine not the top it could be your water pump. It could be shot and it is designed to start leaking out of the whole in the bottom. That would be my guess look there and see if you can see the coolant coming from the bottom of the pump

It looks like it is dripping from somewhere on the front up top, it's hitting the belt and crank wheel. It also does it without the engine on or any pressure in the system.
