No it isn't a blown oil cooler.

What do you think it is ? Do you agree with the prognosis that its my turbo and/or intercooler boots?

Are you sure it's not old oil? I bought mine with about 28K on it serviced by the dealer since new. There was oil all over the place. I cleaned it off real good and it's been clean ever since.

Yeah, pretty sure. When I did the EGR delete about 3 months ago, none of the oil was present.

I didn't see anything in your pictures that alarmed me. Your lower turbo boot looks like most other boots after a few years. Silicon and oil don't play well together. Is it puddling under the truck when it gets parked?

The only thing that is puddling under the truck and under the turbo is my ELC coolant. I did an EGR delete and it just started leaking again.

Check the clamps on the hose from the oil cooler to the intake manifold.

Then get some Greased Lightning and spray the engine compartment down good, let it sit for 15 minutes and hose it off. Repeat if necessary to get stuff clean and then check it every couple of days.
