Default ** Help new motor leaking oil

2005 baja turbo 2.5 turbo

Recieved a new motor under the warranty on my previous one which went after 4500 miles. new block, heads, lifters, cross-drilled crank
new motor has 1600 miles on it and continues to leak oil.

I have gone through 2 qts in this time and have noticed oil pooling up on the top left side of the block near the crank sensor (which was replaced after 750 miles with a new-turns out it wasn't the source of the leak)

ticked off that i drip oil everwhere i park, including my own driveway which was spotless before this occurred.

what is strange is there was no oil leak with the old motor that went south, even though oil was disappearing from that one out the back end as it got burnt up.

the turbo is not factory, but is newish (was on the car before i bought it)

break in:
sat rings, changed oil with motul 5w40 after 500 miles. didn't go full throttle till after 500 miles and oil was changed.

currently have appx 1500 miles on the new motor.

cel codes i'm getting - probably upstream 02 sensor.

i'm going to go searching for this leak myself since the guy who built it has not made time to fix it...yeah i know.

any advice on what hose/tube might be leaking oil somewhere in the top left portion of the motor (when looking towards the front of the vehicle)
