Im also having a oil leak, but there is a few things that can be leaking man. You have turbo pedistal o rings that can leak. The HPOP can leak in the quick connects. O rings are not very expinsive.

if it was from the pedistol O rings...I wouldnt think youd see it coming from the frt of the motor. The valley has a weep hole in the back of it, so it can drain if there is anything collected in it. Good Luck

And what if you replace those lines and get it back together and it is still leaking???
Take some time to clean the top of the eng good and let it dry. Get some really bright lites and inspection mirror. Start the eng for one minute, shut it off. Look, Look, Look. If you don't find the leak, start the eng again, go 2 minutes. You want fo find the very first place you can see the leak.. You could be leaking fuel and it's mixing with the crud on the intake and dripping off the eng, looks like oil.

I agree don't blindly start replacing parts. I just installed my fuel pressure sending unit and cracked the fpr. The resulting little puddles looked exactly like crankcase oil.
