oil leak help

Tranny is out of the truck so its time to locate and fix my oil leak. valley is dry and it only leaks when running. I just checked my valve covers and everything was tight (and fairly dry from what i could tell). The oil is being burned on my drivers side up pipe- everything on the passenger side is dry. Is it likely to have a plug on the back of the head leaking? Im losing about a gallon a week! Any ideas? Also, the passenger side up pipe is leaking. What type/ where can I find these gaskets? Thanks

Well a gallon of week is probably too much for the o-rings on the pedestal of the turbo I'm assuming?

Im assuming. Bottom of the turbo is dry from what I can tell. Ill pull the up-pipes this week and get a better look. Also I would imagine that if it were an oring on the turbo that both up-pipes would have oil on them, not just drivers wouldnt they? Just looking for advice ahead of time so I know where to start.

Most likely, I would just start at the top of the motor and work your way down, just as you have done so far. Hope you get it figured out!
