Oil Leak Around Turbo..

I'm leaking oil around/on/under the turbo. It runs down the passenger side of the block with a lot on the starter. I'm leaning towards a seal on the turbo oil feed/drain lines which I've ordered, is there anything else it could be? This happened after an oil cooler/egr delete job by the way..

Besides the turbo, it is quite possible you may have a leak from the oil cooler housing.

I used new orings and grease the fittings but I'm thinking i might have not got the drain pipe in all the way..how much should the pipe move when it's in there?

And i don't think it's the oil cooler cover because there is really no oil coming from around that area, it's mostly around the pedestal.

The turbo drain should pop in easily with grease and fully seat, it moves abound a bit for turbo alignment.possible you damaged the top oring when reinstalling the turbo.

You have an 06, so you have the new style drain pipe. The key is to install the pipe in the HPOP cover and have it sit in the correct spot on the pedestal. If you don't hit it out of position when installing the turbo, it usually seats quite easily. The o-rings are fairly robust, but sometimes if you drag enough dirt into the seal mating surface it can leak. I guess you will be going back to re-seat the turbo.

You were correct sir! I only got a quarter turn out of it with a stubby wrench but it solved the problem.
