possible oil pan leak?

what is the possibility of having an oil pan leak on my 02 7.3? i was reading on the here that most of the time it is usually something else leaking down and that oil pan leaks arent that common. I dont know how much truth is in that but i cannot pin point a source of the leak. It is on the passenger side of the truck only. Kinda around the pan but it also is above it kinda by the motor mounts and such. i took a few pics from the top and bottom. possible turbo pedestal o ring? i dont know kinda new to these. i can see a little bit of oil in the rear valley but cannot tell if it has been there or is fresh. my truck isnt low on oil so i know its not a bad leak. i just am not a fan of leaks that i dont know where its coming from. the second to last pic is one of my intake pipes just underneath my intercooler pipe on the driver side you can see where i wiped my finger on it. im assuming thats just oil from the crankcase out of my boots. any help????

if this a 99 or 2000 model , it can be the oil pan, if the majority of the oil is oin that area , its not a major problem, but it is a problem i have seen time and time again, on the earlier superduties , just make sure before tearing into it that its not from the enginer valley , maybe clean it all up and drive it some and see what you think from there , the right rear corner of the oil pan is where the pan will leak if that is the out come, right above the starter

the truck is a 2002. The leak isn't in one general spot it is all over the passenger side. I'm gonna get in there and try to clean everything an try to see if it's coming from the pan first.
