huge oil leak

i bought an 01 f250 last week, it has a huge oil leak. at first i was scared bc i thought it was the rear main seal. But now ive noticed that the valley is full of oil. it drips right down right off the fly wheel cover. i believe this to be the hpop? any help would be appreciated.

Here's an interesting video, BUT I have to warn you about this guy,,,, he makes Great Videos, that Does NOT make him infallible though. He's got some really GOOFY theories (not about this though) So, don't take him as your Guru, as many do Confirm his advice on anything else he says

could be HPOP line oring gone bad, or could be the turbo pedestal.... Oring is cheapest, pedestal you can find one without that stupid actuator on ebay for $170. I got the pedestal without the actuator and it works flawless, it came with orings and the flange that goes before the compressor side of the turbo. Down in South Texas I do not need a gate to close and make m engine warm up faster..... also you might check around the oil cooler on the driver side of the block next to the exhaust manifold for leaks. My oil cooler orings were as dry as the sahara and were leaking like a siv.... That "flange" as I referred to it as is really the Exhaust Back Pressure Valve, I had to look up the proper name for it

I too had a huge oil leak and it was the HPOP lines leaking. Seals were bad. It left a large puddle of oil in the parking lot. This type of oil leak looks like it is a serious rear main seal problem. The valley of the engine was full of oil. The HPOP can put out a lot of oil very quickly. The turbo pedestal had a leak also but nothing compared to the HPOP seals leaking.

When my pedestal was leaking right before I got it replaced it was a bad one. Left a grapefruit size puddle a few minutes after shutdown and it belched oil out one cold morning. Hope you get it figured out, when the engine is not hot reach back behind the turbo with a clean hand and you will know if that pedestal is leaking, HPOPs are kinda a no brainer when there is a nice stream from them as well.
