Doesn't look like to bad of a deal. A couple of things, these engines use a sealant for the oil pan gasket and they seldom leak from there, the leak usually comes from the rear main seal, rusted out pan, oil cooler o-rings, turbo pedestal o-rings and runs down the back of the block, or the dipstick tube where it enters the pan. If it is the oil pan sealant/gasket the engine needs to come out of the truck to fix. The intercooler, D66, trans, etc where all expensive upgrade's so that is good. I would inspect the impeller on the air inlet side of the turbo because of that really crappy K&N air filter that is on there.
