Unbolt the motor mounts from the subframe, then jack up the engine so I can access the back of the pan. The back of the pan is dry as a rock, so that was not my leak. I checked around my flywheel, no oil there (thank god I would have been pissed if my 800 dollar flywheel and clutch was covered in oil). So I start snooping around and find this. The picture is hard to see but my oil return line is attached to the block but not to the turbo. I remember at the time thinking, wow these are really flimsy and a half *** solution, but its oem I'll roll with it. Now I have to get this hose back on. Fortunately, with the GTX turbo all these fluid connections will utilize AN fittings so there will be no leaks. Also, I was lucky and none of the oil got on my Up-pipe or header wrap.

So, fortunately I know what the problem is, didn't seriously damage anything, and can now fix the issue.
