Front of Engine Oil Leak, NOT HPOP

Ok, so after I cleaned up the valley and got my turbo pedestal swapped and new O-rings, no more leak in the valley or back of the engine.

The fron however, is covered. Not sure from what, was origionally thinking LPOP, but now I think it's something else... not sure the name tho. Pics are attached, LMK what you think.

Thanks in advance!

Looks just like mine. And after lots of time searching for the leak I have determined it is from the oil pan seal. Not worth the 2k it will cost to pull the motor if it is just a small leak IMO. Yours may not be the same tho but it may help. Please post what your finding is as it may help me with mine in case i diagnosed it wrong. I also have one on the back that's driving me crazy.

My back one was the "dripper" but I'm pretty sure what this one is... waiting on some others opinions tho.

I doubt the pan is bad, but after looking at mine, I think I need to invest this next tax-return season in buying a NEW oil pan, and an engine hoist, and pull the entire engine to do the oil pan, new (probably stock) headers, and (bellowed) up pipes.

Either that or just pay the dealer to do it, but I don't have one local nor do I really trust one to do it. I don;t think sanding/painting my pan will save it for long, and it's rusted all the way around. What a PIA.
