Where is my Oil leaking from???

Ok I have an 03 F250 6.0. It started to leak oil like crazy, If it runs for like 5 minutes it dumps out a good 1 1/2-2 quarts of oil and I can't see where it is leaking from. I know that oil was all over the turbo and the rear of the motor. And its not leaking from the inlet oil line on the turbo or anywhere else that can be seen. I took the turbo off and there is a lot of oil on the rear valley of the motor. So Im guessing that its either leaking from the turbo return line or the icp sensor. How do I find out? Is it ok to block off the turbo inlet oil line and crank the motor to see? Or what? Any suggestions on how to find out what it is and how to do it??

the 03's blow out the icp sensors a lot, and cause bad oil leaks. If the truck was running and you are under it on the drivers side, look up at the pump cover. You'll prolly see oil dripping off of that silver insulator.

oh yeah, if the stock heat shield is there, it would be hard to see, for sure
