The amount in the vally probably isnt changing casue its full of oil and is dripping down the back side of your motor. I had this issue (blown oring on my HPOP loosing 2 gallons every 20 miles) ended up seeping into my bellhousing saturating my clutch ruining it.

Your HPOP system has to be leaking if its only leaking while running. Mine started as a small drip like you explain and then turned into a 60 mile long oil trail untill i made it to a parts store. Glad i had a case of oil in my rig.

Well all my fittings are dry (I think) around my HPOP. I am defiantly going to look at them again! Would the turbo pedestal leak only under pressure?

Pedestal is part of the Pressurized oil system, low pressure but pressure non the less. If it where me I'd soak my valley, hpop and base of turbo in simple green or some sort of degreaser, get it all oil free then start from there. Be a lot easier that way to chase an oil leak than on a dirty engine.

I was thinking dipstick as well except that it only happens while running

That means it is the dipstick. The oil level is below that hole in the pan when still. When running it's slung around.
I've had mine open three or four times with oil still in it.

No not my dip stick, completely dry around there. Hopefully this afternoon I will get some time to spray it down with a degreaser and start from their.
