Still Leaking Oil

Had oil leaking on driveway just above the back of the motor. Was told that HPOP lines or fuel drain leak would fill valley and run out of the back of motor. I looked close under HPOP lines and there was a ton of oil. I replaced HPOP o-rings (they were a little ugly) and I replaced fuel drain. I cleaned up as much oil in the valley as I could so I could see if it stopped leaking. I went a day and notice a couple more drops of oil on the driveway. I looked under the HPOP in valley and there is a ton of oil again. I cant see where its coming from. HPOP lines are dry. Any suggestions?

Cracked hpop? I have heard of this happening, and it seems to be on the bottom most of the time.

my guess would be pedestal o-rings , or actuator rod for the ebpv if the hpop o-rings are good

I have done HPOP orings and rebuilt the Fuel bowl. I was learning the whole time I did those two repairs and it took me about 3 hours each. They were done a month apart. How hard is the pedestal o-rings or the actuator rod to do? What should be done at that time while in there?

both involve removing the turbo. Not a hard job just a pia to get to stuff and lining the up-pipe flange back to the turbo just kicks my azz everytime , because i have zero patience. You can diy gut the ebpv while its all off or order the modded parts if you want , just a little more airflow is your gain. Order your o-rings first , and once the turbos off its all pretty easy. You dont have to mod anything under there at all though , just replace the pedestal mount o-rings top/bottom and then theres a gasket on the inside of the actuator rod that might be leaking as well , you will be able to tell once you get to it , but since your that far might as well replace it too.

I'm planning on getting a whole new pedistial and doing mine, a new NON-EBPV pedestial from Clay @ Rifraf is $120, and I believe it comes with the new O-rings.

Then you can just run a resistor in the plug or buy a plug-delete for the EBPV so you won't get any codes. I'm doing mine this summer.
