Oil leak

Is there a seal or a gasket or a line on the turbo that would cause the truck to lose all oil in a matter of 10 miles?

Turbo only has two small o-rings and a 1" engine oil operated butterfly valve (EBPV). Find the butterfly valve post turbine housing underside, follow the actuator rod back to the turbo pedestal. That's where the leak is from if its the Turbo.

Otherwise,

High Pressure Oil Pump (HPOP) lines. 2000psi of spitting fire.

Check the HP oil lines at the HPOP to hose joints and the HPOP hose to head joints. Also check the unused ports on the heads that correspond to the other cylinders (where the HPOP hoses could alternatively be connected). I had a hose-to-pump o-ring blow out and lost 6 quarts in 5 miles. Cheers!
