try and clean it up with some brakeclean and try and see exactly where its coming from. it may be fuel, not oil.

could be turbo pedestal o-rings, or as simple as the air intake spider boots leaking oil and running down the lip of the intake plenum and into the valley or down the back.

More then likely its a turbo pedistal leak, but it could be the exhaust back pressure valve rod.

As others have said, clean the area really well and drive. You should be able to pin point the area better.

Pulling the turbo is not hard, can be done with basic driveway tools.
