Default Oil is everywhere

I have recently installed some megan racing, 1 piece up-pipe and header combo. My friend who was helping out with the install jacked up the motor, removed the passenger side motor mount nut and jacked from the oil pan. Oil is everywhere under the car as i learned today, leaking a tiny bit from the filter. But more so, oil is all over the front jacking point, the front sway bar, the oil pan, and some has gotten on the downpipe.

Any thoughts/suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks

Did your friend use a wooden block or something on the oil pan, or just let the jack cradle go on it directly? If the latter, is the oil pan punctured? Did you damage any seals while doing the up-pipe (not uncommon for people to do that) or maybe loosen one of the oil lines to the turbo? You really need to clean the areas, run the engine briefly, then look to see if you can figure out where it's coming from... once it's all over the place, it can be a pain to find the source.

DrD... i went down and cleaned everything very, very thoroughly, ran the car for a bit, and shut it off. I went down and the oil seems to be leaking from directly above the cross member area... could this be one of the turbo oil lines?

could be either an oil line to the turbo or the gasket around the pan has been broken, although that shouldn't cause much oil leaking, it would seep out in that case.

Jacking from the oilpan is a big problem, I would think something with the oilpan. Replacing a header is a big job and would be best to remove the entire block from the bay. That's a lot of weight on the oil pan, surprised it didn't crush it.
