Coolant Leak, Passenger Side

Hi all, I just picked up an 04 F-250 with a 6.0 PSD 2 weeks ago. I drove it yesterday and all was fine, I didn't drive it at all today. When I got up this morning I noticed liquid under the passenger side of the truck. It's definitely coolant (sweet smelling). I've taken a few pictures, and would love it if those who know better (anybody reading this, I'm sure) might have an idea of where to start looking?

I've traced it to the top I think, it's the part pictured below. What is this? I have the BLUE EGR hose, not the orange. That's the good one right?

I had the same problem when i first got my motor back in and filled with coolant. Thanks all of you for the great info. Here is what i did. I removed the fresh air tube from my turbo.
Then I tapped on the top of the cap where my egr delete/coolant by pass ties into my oil cooler housing and tightened the torx bolts. Then I tightened the hose clamps on the hose that connects the egr cooler delete. No more leak.

you're looking at a heater hose. The valve you've circled is where the a/c shuts off hot water to the heater core when you put the A/C in MAX COOL.

The EGR hose is down under the turbo, much more trouble to get to.
