oil leak

I installed my 190/100's this last week and my mtw stage 3 and I have an oil leak under the turbo area. I pulled the turbo and the orings looked ok on the drain tube, but I had another sitting around so I swapped the orings and it still leaked. And since I didn't have the leak before all of this I decided to put my powermax back on and it leaked also. Now what confuses me is that at an idle it doesn't leak a drop its only while driving which makes finding the source even harder. Everywhere around the valve covers that I can see and injector connectors looks clean. I cleaned the pedestal and drain tube off and went and drove it and there was some oil on them when i got back so i think it has to be the drain tube so I ordered a whole new one from my local ford dealer and it won't be here till Friday I just wanted to get some opinions if it is the drain tube or if I could have another issue. The truck starts just as fast as before once the air got worked out and it runs good.

are you sure its oil and could it be coming from the HPOP cover?

Not trying to insult your intelligence but sometimes things are easy to overlook.

Also, You might wanna pull the tube off of the turbo and see if any oil is leaking from there possibly pooling up at idle then when it boosts it comes out of the boots

It doesn't look like the hpop cover is leaking. And I actually had a little oil pooling on the pedistal right below the drain tube. And when I did my injectors and turbo I didn't mess with the hpop so I kinda assumed that nothing was wrong with it the hpop is only around a year old.
