oil leak...not hpop

I found an oil leak coming from what i thought was the hpop, due to oil in the valley and leaking down the back, but it is not from the hpop. took a look at it and cant seem to find the leak. could it be from one of the turbo oil lines? or from somewhere completely different? any info would be great thanks!

that is my next place i am going to look. someone told me that the rubber connecters on the turbo pipes seep oil out as well and to just tighten the clamps down. hoping thats the issue and that i dont have to remove anything.

Don't wait too long

My leak developed immediately after I heard a balloon-like popping noise under the hood, but it leaked thru the exhaust system and blew white smoke when it was running. The turbo lost power and needs to be replaced.
