    Yeah maybe more likely, but if it's flowing so fast that the hpop reservoir emptys, I could see a 4 second fill time delay.

    Air tests never hurt for sure, but always just pull the dipstick first lol. Had a buddy with a 7.3 psd chase his tail for over a month with scan tools and research and sensor testing just to find that you'll have intermittent strange idle and oil pressure loss when you are a gallon of oil low.

    Easiest thing first always

    A knuckle works well, the ipr socket is a must.
    I purchased the adapter that goes in place of the ipr valve. That way can avoid having to supply power to the ipr.

    So pulled codes and this is what I got IMG_20190706_174117.jpg

    Looks like hpop I still need to do an air test just have to pull the toys out of the garage so I have room to pull the excursion in if it is hpop and I do a air test what do I put Sten for every video iv watched has been pretty uninformative of what to look and listen too

    If using the adapter that goes in place of the ipr, you shouldn't hear any leaks at all.
    I already had a hpop on hand, I had the intake and turbo removed. I heard the air from the turbo drain tube hole that goes into the hpop cover. You can also pull the oil fill cap off.
    Would be easiest to isolate with the valvecovers off. I'm not sure if you would be able to pin point it with the covers on. Maybe by pulling the other dummy plug on the driver side valve cover.
    Your year actually has the better "plumbing," unlike the 04+ with the standpipes. That's not to say they can't leak, it's just not common. Same for the nipple cups on the oil rail.
    It can also take a few minutes before you hear air, basically will have to push oil out of the way first.

    Yes I was planning on pulling both valve covers hoping to better isolate the leak

    As mentioned above, also pull out the oil filter and disconnect the turbo oil drain to listen at those points as well.

    This happened to our 6.0 excursion. Took about 15-20 seconds of cranking to build enough low pressure oil to feed the HPOP and build high oil pressure with the ball gone. I took the HPOP out and tapped it for a pipe plug. Never did find the ball bearing in the engine.....
