Wh1t3nukle will become famous soon enough

Unsure if the OP found his leak, but here are some other typical places to check. Also, some can only be found by using a paper towel and at the moment of shutting off...

1. Heater core hoses in/out
2. Water pump on the bottom side
3. Upper Rad Hose to the IM
4. Bypass hose
5. Water Pump Inlet Pipe - oring there likes to deteroriate. This one is either obvious or need a paper towel next to it wick the liquid. Sometimes only seen seconds after shutdown b/c of back pressure.

Always look for remnants of dried up crystals

These are basic checks that don't require removing parts.
