How much water? Droplets? Oil is common but other then droplets if the car was sitting parked for a few days in a temperature changing climate is not normal.

It was more of a puddle and the car hasn't been parked for a few days, its my daily driver and I don't really want to turn it on until I know what that water is from

Are you sure you didn't get water/coolant in there when/if you unhooked the EGR small coolant hoses?

Yeah I'm 100% sure..should I just take the manifold off and empty the water and then see if it comes back?

I would. Because if there is as much water as you're describing chances are you will suck that up into your engine and get a misfire code from blowing out your spark.

Do you by any chance have a cold air intake? That would possibly suck up water if you are driving through puddles.
