More of the same questions. Oil leak from the top of the motor???

I've read alot of threads in reference to oil leaking from the valley. I bought this truck in Feb. and knew there was a small leak with one of the braided lines from the HPOP. I have the O rings to fix this seeping leak. Poking around tonight looking at my up pipes I noticed there is oil seeping from around some of the hex heads on top of the drivers side head or by the Y pipe . I cant pin point it without cleaning the area first but what is there that could be leaking. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks guys, Eric

Either HPOP O rings or turbo pedestal o rings more than likely

Best idea is to clean it, and follow it back.

PS. It is a lot of work to get these trucks leak free lol

Old piston and new piston already installed, it's easy to fix but the turbo has to come out.


And here is what it looked like before I cleaned and rebuilt it.


See if yours looks like this.
