Coolant leaking between Intake Manifold and Engine

I've had no overheating problems at all. I had the car serviced by Kerven Subaru about 2 weeks ago and they had indicated to me that the coolant level was low at that time (they added some). The thermostat housing looks good. The coolant appears to be originating somewhere at the rear right of the engine (turbo side), although it could be just running back there from somewhere else. The area around the coolant temp sensor is dry.

this is one small hose that can create a leak.
The next is the coolant flow from the thermostat to the turbo.
the third is the heater core lines .... they might of sprung a seeping leak?
just a few suggestions to consider.

Also there is a water pipe that bolts to the back of the intake manifold. It could be that too.

If money is way tight then at least the intake gaskets and the little hose at the same time.

turned out the intake manifold gasket on the drivers side had gone to crap and was letting coolant into the intake ports and out onto the head as well
look around the base the manifold where it bolts to the heads for water streaks or tracks
also a good time to replace those itty bitty hoses with the intake off
