Unhappy Hello everyone! new to forum and diesels

As most people find forums when they have issues
i am pretty much the same way
i have a 2003 7.3 f350srw 4x4 and i love it
the problem is that i have an oil leak
it was small at first
then when i put on this device called "big boost" for the turbo
my oil leak went from a golf ball size to watermellon size while its running
now i drove home from my fathers with it leaking and its all over the bottom of my truck from the oil pan area back to the hitch
i started it up today and it took forever to start and only ran for a few seaconds.
I was wondering if the turbo pedistal would leak this much oil
and if the lack of oil would cause it to die like that
i also have a chip in it but not sure what kind
i bought it that way
anyways
thanks for reading
and any help would be great
thanks,
Jason
