Default I've got this leak but not sure how to go about it...

I'm not quite sure how to go about fixing this leak. I'm not quite sure which hose this is for that matter... What is this black hose (be gentle), and did it possibly start leaking because I removed the turbo heat shield after installing a down pipe? Have any of you had this happen?

I assume you're talking about the hose that is running down the firewall and looks like its melted? If so thats the drain for the evaporator core. It can't really leak as its open on one end and just drains the water from your evap core while you're running the A/C.

Actually no, the other black hose in the pic, the one with the 12 stamped on it, the one that follows the grey insulated hose. If you follow it down to the bottom where it connects to the right angle piece and starts heading toward the engine, that hose and connector are leaking oil.

Check the oil lines at the bottom of turbo. Might be disconnected and when oil hits the axle shaft it's flings all over the place.

If it is the power steering lines you could get some aftermarket hose clamps and put on there to tighten it up.
