Still Leaking Oil - Please Help Diagnose!

I just replaced the pedestal o-rings, thinking that was my leak, but I still have the same oil leak as before!!

Symptoms:
Leaks only after I have cut off the engine
It's at the back of the engine; I can see oil along the very back of the valley.
There is a lot of oil buildup along the back of the drivers side head, not on the passengers
Could something be leaking both behind the drivers side head and down into the very back of the valley?

Could it be the oil rail plug?

What else could be leaking oil like that back there?

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

I also appreciate the link. Don't have the issue but it's something to think about if it comes up.

Ive been plauged with oil leaks from the back.
Take a look at the turbo pedistal actuator rod for the ebpv. Thats the last place mine leaked.
The time befor that it was fittings on the hpop leaking slowly and filling up the valley.
That one happened twice from two different spots actually.
Good luck and have fun wrenchin

Joel - My other thread you replied to, I installed a non-complex pedestal and turbonetics high flow turbo outlet. No EBPV issues to deal with anymore.
The oil is definitely not coming from the HPOP. There isn't enough oil that far up the valley, or any signs of oil around it to lead me in that direction.

NoRalPh - Thanks for the vid! Gave a nice look around the motor... And that guy. Yea.
I'm still thinking it's either my pedestal to motor o-rings didn't seat right or that drivers side oil rail plug...
