Oil Leak, upper pipe that connects turbo's

Sorry for the description. Not really sure what to call the pipe, but it appears that is goes from the first turbo (where the intake is) and goes into the second turbo.
Looks like oil is leaking where there is a connection in the pipe. I took a pictures that I hope will help out. Had my brother in laws truck right next to mine yesterday. Identical truck, no leak at all. Dry as dry could be.

Any input?

Hey sorry to hear about your problem. What you are seeing an oil leak on your turbo crossover pipe, I noticed this also on my truck about a month ago. 1 dealer tried telling me it was normal, well I like you looked at my buddies truck and sure enough super clean and no oil. So i got a second opinion from a different dealership service tech..... here is what they found and fixed under warranty: They ran an All in 1 DYE test and they found seals at the turbo crossover pipe and at the extension pipe at the turbo both leaking, they removed the degas bottle, and cross over pipe, then replaced gaskets that mount inside of crossover pipe, also had to replace the gasket that mounts into turbo. Hope this helps.
