oil leak

i just bought a 99 powerstroke and ive got an oil leak that was dripping from the back of the engine. i thought it could be the rear main but i looked from the top and found oil in the intake valley and it was dripping out the back so before i tear into that i was curious if anyone had any leaks in this area.it looked to be coming from more towards the front of the enignes..any help would be great. im new to diesels so im just not sure what to expect .. thanks

Usually it is the turbo pedestal, either where he turbo mounts or where the pedestal mounts to the engine. It can also be the high pressure lines that connect or the High Pressure Oil Pump (HPOP). A few other spots, but these are the most likely.
