I think it may be oil dipstick but it doesn't pour out like that when the motor isn't running. Maybe it's the oil separator, or maybe a sensor wasn't tight, but it was pouring out from the intake side. Underneath. Its Not the oil pan gasket for sure. Didn't look like it was coming out of any obvious place but I know it isn't the head gasket either. Not VCG either.

I think there is an oil pressure sensor by the oil filter housing. Was anything disconnected in that area? Clean off the spilled oil, fill it up and run the engine, if the leak is that bad, you'll find it easily.
