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?
EGR delete--4" turbo back exhaust
