Oil on block, possibly coming from turbos? PICS INSIDE

I just went out and changed the oil in my truck (6.4L Powerstroke- 21,500miles/684 engine hrs) and I noticed some oil that wasn't there at last oil change (well, it might have been there but not bad enough to notice). Take a look at this and see what you think is going on. This is on the drivers side of the engine block.









NOT GOOD I'm thinking!! Ideas/Opinions? I'm going to try and take it in asap.

How did you get it fixed?

Somone told me a possible turbo drain back hose leaking as well. Which would mean cab-off to fix which sounds crazy to do just to fix a little leaky hose, lol. I'm just thinking if i'm going to get something for a Cab-off i'm going to try to get them to replace my horizontal EGR cooler because i've bad some oil samples from blackstone the past three times (high flux) that point towards a bad EGR, and it gets worse each oil change. I'm also slowly loosing coolant, so......

On a positive note, could be a good time to upgrade to head studs though.

I just changed the oil and filter yesterday, and torqued the cap to 20 ft-lbs like I always do. This time after I found the oil I climbed on top of the fender and looked right down on top of the oil filter and did not see a single trace of oil anywhere. It has to be coming from somewhere near the back of the engine I believe.

Obviously, but I don't think a 20,000 mile engine should look like that, Diesel or not. My uncles 7.3L looks better than that and it has 160k miles on it! But then again, that's a 7.3L.
