2003 Ford F250 Powerstroke Oil leak after oil cooler replacment

Hello all, just purchased the F250 a short while ago from a "friend". It was supposed to have the EGR delete and other maintenance done to it. After just having the oil cooler and EGR cooler fail, I've found I have a small basket case!

I just finished putting it together with a EGR delete and new oil cooler. I reused the old oil cooler plate assembly. After starting the truck, I have two issues
1: Exhaust leak at the uppipe to turbo (easy enough)

2: Major oil leak while running. It comes from the EGR cooler jacket area towards the front. Here are two pictures before/after. Assembled with all new ford O-rings and gaskets. Trying to get advice before I tear it back apart.

Other maintenance done-
New water separator manifold
Billet fuel filter cap
Blue spring upgrade
Clean/repaired turbo
Flushed coolant and replaced with ELC and distilled water
