03 6.0 Oil Leak

So Last night I drove a few miles, got home and saw I was leaking a good amount of oil, and it smoking under the hood. I open the hood and saw that there was oil all over the turbo and the top/back of the motor. It leaked about 1-2 quarts in that few miles of driving. Any suggestions on what it could be before tear into it? Thanks for any help.

Check the hot side (passenger side) CAC tube and boots. Clean it up, spray with green cleaner with engine running and look for bubbles in soap... I was able to find a cold side leak with just idling not under load. Good luck!
