How many miles on your rig? Could be many things, under turbo, pipe boots, ect.

If you have any oil in the valley, I would suspect the HPOP Orings. I am due for my 3rd set now & I have only owned my truck for about 35k! They are cheap & easy to replace & there are multiple how to's & video's showing how it's done.
