under the fuel bowl u have an oil pump, the o-rings on the oil lines at the pump are probably leaking and the plug on the back of the pump as well, easy fix, just did mine about a half an hour.

more than likely High pressure oil lines, they are 2 lines next to each other, to the right of fuel filter if your looking at engine facing the windshield. 2 orings in there.

Ill be willing to put 5 bucks on it that its the turbo. Something to do with the turbo. Most likely the pedestal. Pressure wash the valley, ideal to use steam clean, be careful around MAP sensor and electronics. Buy some oil Die and run it for a few miles then put a black light up in the valley you should be able to pin point where the leak is. Thats what the techs and IH do. Thats how they found my leak. Thank gosh it was under warranty still.

Built engine, rods, pushrods, cam, springs. Meth, turbo, injectors, fuel system, oil system. 3 disk billet, billet shafts built trans, 6.0 IC, exhaust, intake. Latter bars, gears, system, tint, HIDs. You know the typical stuff to make a 7.3 get out of its own way... dont brake.
