Can't track down this oil leak.

I have a leak that is about a drip a second and it's driving me crazy. The bottom of the oil pan is wet towards the front end side and drips off one of those corners. It is not my valve cover, my cylinder head plug feels dry, and so does my turbo, and its not the rear main seal. I cant think of anything else.

My truck has been off for ten minutes and its still leaking. I guess I didn't really check my turbo that well but I'm not convinced that's it.

Clean it all then check.
Oil cooler can leak. Dipstick tube adapter can. HPOP front gear cover or HPOP and reservoir seals.

I just did the oil cooler and it's bone dry so not that. I will check the others though.
