I broke something and I need some advice

well i was on the freeway last night and got on the gas a bit got up to around 18 pounds of boost when my problem happened. I had glanced back and saw the black smoke we put out when on the throttle but the smoke didnt stop. I realized after a few seconds I had a dead gas pedal and no boost. still smoking. well i pulled off the freeway and when i got stopped and got out I had oil all under the truck. I opened the hood and you can see by the pic below what i found. I have oil everywhere. I did crank it to see if it would restart and it would not but not hearing clanking like a rod broke. Dont think anything internal broke. No oil coming out the tail pipe also. Oil was dripping from the hood liner. Due to the amount of oil I tend to believe it has something to do with the High pressure oil lines but really do not know where to start.

I used simple green and cleaned the engine compartment back up. I checked the two hpop lines and didnt see anything wrong with them. I disconnect one side and put air to it and no leaks. I took a pic of the oil cross over and it looks ok but of course the damage could be on the down side you would think there would be a sign you could see in the pic of the crossover line.

So given the amount of oil where do you think the failure happened and where would you start?

When a HPOP goes how does it go?

when a turbo goes how does it go?

clean off the engine bay and inspect the lines. also the turbo is easy to get off. so if the lines arent the issue yank the turbo and look at it.

when a turbo goes, in my case, was a thick cloud of WHITE smoke. I think your hpop or lines went.

i pulled the air filter just so i could check and see if the compressor wheel was locked up and it spun freely. I am not seeing anything obvious so I think my plan of attack is to do an oil change and top off the oil. Once I do that i am going to have the other half crank it while I am under the hood and see if and where it leaks from. I am hoping to minimize the oil loss hence not waste to much oil. I was due for an oil change so if I just top off now that is just wasted oil. I really do not like the idea of being under hood to see where the oil comes out of but I am thinking that is the only way i can figure this out. There was oil everywhere so no tell tell sign of a hint to know where to start.

I just changed the oil filter and put in around 3.5 gallons of rotella T...Nothing poured out naturally so i started to crank on it. I did three cycles on it and I started to hear the starter slow down so i stopped so i could charge the batteries back up. I know it will take some cranking to get the air out of the oil system. While cranking on the this go around I didnt see any oil shooting out of anywhere so I assume lots of air in system.will try again in an hour or so after the batteries charge back up.

OP...check the "checkvalve" plug, located on d/s to the right, of the hpop. You'll see a 3/8 sq. hole that an extention can use to remove it. Mayyybbbeee the leaks' there.

Did you check to make sure the icp sensor didn't blow out? Happened to another member here on the org.
