EGR delete

Did the delete and new oil cooler over the weekend. Everything went back together fine but now I seem to have a small oil leak coming off the back of the motor. I've had some guys suggest the IPR valve but that seems to be on the opposite side the leak is coming from. I don't see any oil coming from the oil cooler cover and nothing from the tube going to the HPOP from the turbo.

Not sure what it could be and it's only a couple drops here and there. Should I pull everything back apart or is it just coincidental that I developed a leak somewhere unrelated to the egr delete? I think I just need some outside opinions on whether I should dig everything back out right away or if it can wait until some more parts show up in the mail.

Turbo drain? Maybe get a scope and search. Residue is my other thought

I borrowed a scope couldn't find anything. I let the truck sit for a day and a 1/2 and still got a few oil drops. Your probably right it just being residue.

Don't be afraid to take a hose and spray the valley out of anything that ran back towards the cab while doing the job. I usually do that and waste a can of break clean and look for leaks after a few days.
