03 6.0 oil leak

I have an oil leak that was coming from the back of my engine. coated the turbo on the exhaust side but was running down the drivers side of the enginein buckets. It splattered to the ficm and wire harness in that area. when I pulled the turbo the first time oil was pooled on the pedestal but not in the valley underneath. I pulled the turbo and icp sensor. Replaced the o ring on the icp and put it all back together, did an oil change and started the truck up. Took it for a test drive oil still leaking but not like it was before. The truck never died out and never lost power while driving. Starts right up hot or cold with no problem. Please help

Was the ICP sensor wet in the connector area where the pigtail plugs up? These sensors mainly leak out the connectors and not the O-ring.

no but it was tough to tell being that oil splatter was everywhere. I replaced the sensor and pigtail about 4 months ago so the sensor is new.
