The oil cooler is right next to the drivers side exhaust manifold.
Check the back of the turbo for oil. Could be the pedestal o-rings. I found out my pedestal o-rings were leaking because it ran down the back of the block and through the little weep hole in the transmission dust pan. That's why it's there. Using a flashlight, I laid under the truck and pointed it up at the back of the pedestal. There was a slight trail of oil and when I reached up with my hand I could feel it. Just takes some digging to find out where leaks come from.
If it's the rear main seal, which is highly unlikely, I believe the engine has to come out because the engine has to be flipped over for the pan gasket to be sealed. There's plenty of information on here about it. I'd keep digging before I assume rear main. I'd also remove the little dust pan I was talking about, you'll be able to see whether oil is running down the back or if it is indeed a real main leak.
