Oil leak around oil cooler

I am new to diesels and to the forum. I have a 04 f250 6.0 148,XXX. I was looking under my truck tonight and noticed oil on most surfaces under the engine and aft of the engine. Climbed on top of the engine and noticed significant oil on top of where my egr oil cooler line "blue line" connects to the top of my oil cooler. Nothing forward of that just aft of it and down both sides of my engine. Does anyone have any ideas of what this could be. I just ordered an egr delete and a blue spring upgrade. While I have the turbo off what should I look for or replace, or is there anything I can do in the mean time until I get the parts and start tearing into it? Thanks for any input!

The oil filter housing has an o ring that can leak that high. The oil pressure switch and oil temp sensor could too.
Clean up that area with engine degreaser and hose it off and then go for a drive and see if you can see a fresh trail of oil starting to pinpoint where the leak is from.

My problem is i cannot find it. i degreased everything and today i was helping someone move so i was pulling a trailor and i parked for maybe an hour in the one spot and when i left she called me and said that i had left a baseball sized spot and 2 other golf ball sized spots in the driveway... when i got home i looked under the truck and it seems to be coming down both sides of the engine??? one spot it was dripping onto was the driveshaft and the on the other side it was coming down off the right side of the oil pan. i just bought this truck recently and am having horrible luck with it as far as the oil leak goes. the parts for my egr delete and blue spring kit just came in the mail. what should i replace or look at that could be a potential problem while the turbo and egr cooler is off?

Once i pull my turbo and everything off hopefully i will be able to see where the leak is coming from... do you happen to know a part # for the oil cooler o-ring kit if it does happen to be the same thing on mine?
