'97 7.3 Turbo wet underneath?

Hi there.

I have a '97 7.3. I crawled underneath to find what looks like an oil leak. Any ideas?

Here is a picture of the leak, I circled where it's wet.

My guess is the high pressure oil pump located on the top front portion of you engine. It then runs down threw the valley and down the back. Also check around the turbo.
