Angry Oil Everywhere - Need Help

So I finally got enough money to change from Delo 15w 40 to 5w 40. Got it done yesterday. Got up this morning an there is 1/3 of a qt under my truck. Drove to work and with 15 min there is another 1/3 qt under my truck. Did some looking around and it seems like it is coming from all the way around were my tranny meets my block. Top, bottom, everywhere. I know with a lighter weight oil its easier for it to find places to leak but this is bad. Plus I just spent $150.00 on oil hoping for better not worse. I am not overly familiar with the block / transmission area. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. I don't have enough money to run her into the shop.

So I did some more lookin and it seems to be coming from where me bell housing meets the block. I am not sure what is above the bell housing but that seems to be the point of origin. Thanks in advance guys.

Would that amount of oil consistantly come out of those weep holes? If so what would cause it? I didn't overfill it.

The ICP sensor is a common leaker on the 6.0 (I think that's the sensor). Its under the turbo somewhere from what I have read, but it could probably be 10 other things too

I think several people say check the turbo lines and 0-ring.

anything leaking on the top of the motor will run down the back of the motor. Oil Filter housing, turbo feed line, turbo return, or ICP.

New developments - Not the filter housing. Can't see any oil from the top of the engine. It is definitely coming from above the bell housing. I also have either coolant or oil coming out of the exhaust pipe. I can't tell which it is. Does that mean EGR?

Found oil on top of the motor. If you were to look down from above it is between the filter housing and turbo. Turbo line is fine and dry, filter housing is fine and dry. EGR? Oil cooler?
