Massive oil leak by turbo

Hi All,

I purchased an 04 lb7 that was used as a plow truck and sat the rest of the time. I'm expecting lots of issues and thought joining the forum would be a good idea. My first issue was easy just replacing all the power steering and power back lines. finally got to drive it and now i have a massive oil leak coming from the turbo area. Has anyone encountered this problem before? I'm assuming it's just the oil lines but looks like I have to take the turbo off to get to them anyway. Any suggestions? anything I should do to the turbo while I have it out? Truck has 178,000 on the clock.
