If the valley and turbo are dry then it is likely the rear main. Pull the panel, soray some brake clean up on the crank (between the block and flywheel) then blow dry. Now fire it up and watch for a seep. Engine might have to be warm to get it to leak.

Also, check the oil rail plugs on the back of the engine. They sometimes leak too.
