Can anyone give me a site that describes the external engine components for the 6.0?

I have oil being blown back from the front of the engine covering the oil filter housing. I need to identify the 2 in. pipe just forward of the filter as that is where the oil seams to be originating.

Yes.

The oil was showing up where my figure is pointing and blown back from that point.

Could it be coming from the clamp?

This is a new issue.

Just before I discovered this I was pulling a hill with trailer and my boost jumped to 33 lbs and it set a Pressure valve code. I cleared the codes and then discovered the oil. The amount of oil and the dirt that was in it says the oil was there long before the overboost.

That's your cold side intercooler tube. It could be a couple different things. Loose clamp, cracked tube or your intercooler and tubes are completely saturated in oil from the crank case breather. I would clean it up, tighten the clamp and keep an eye on it

if it is coming from the tube I have to assume there is oil in the intercooler. How much oil is exceptable and how would i clear it from the intercooler?

It has been suggested I move the crankcase breather tube to vent to atmosphere. Any pictures as to where it is?

A small amount is normal, excessive is hard to describe. The plastic pipe you have is bad for splitting at the bellows [flex] portion or on the bottomside. There is an updated aluminum tube available. The CAC itself can be removed and cleaned [boiled out] if heavy oiling is suspected.
