Oil leak question

I have oil pooling in the valley and it doesn't look like it's coming from the turbo pedestal or the HPOP. Everything below the intake covers looks wet, and everything above the covers looks clean & dry. Could oil be leaking from the intake covers? I don't want to take these covers off if I don't have to because it looks like I would need to take the HPOP off in order to remove the passenger side intake cover. Does anyone have any ideas? Any help would be much appreciated.

the lines from hpop and the plugs in the heads would be the most common if it isnt the pump o-rings , ive never seen intakes leak

Had my valley pooling with oil as well a couple months back, running down the back of the block and then covering driveline when in motion and sure enough it was the o-rings on the hpop. Everything above looked to be fine though.

Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt
Never had CNC's junk on any of it, never will.
