6.0 oil leak under turbo

I have an 06 F250 4x4 with 34k on the clock. I'm getting oil down the back of the motor and onto the frame and ground. Further inspection shows it's dripping directly under the turbo onto the front of the manifold. I'm real good w gas engines, but this is my first turbo diesel. It's too crowded so I can't see any further down in there. Any ideas on where its coming from? Any other places possible other than the turbo? Thx!!

Just attached pics. I know they stink, but it was the best I could do....

I felt under the turbo unit itself, doesn't seem wet...

I removed my turbo about a month ago or longer and pulled the turbo drain tube out and it was leaking a **** ton of oil out of it...I would imagine that if it is the o ring that is on the drain pipe that is bad could be causing this?? just throwing it out there hope it helps
