odd leak

I have a leak that shows up after a little bit of driving. Its leaking oil and looks like spraying or running down my down pipe. Is it possible that the transmission is leaking oil between the housings (t5) and spraying? have not gotten a real good look at it yet.

More than likely it's the rear main.

do you have your crankcase vented? mine does it when i drive hard because i dont have enough crankcase ventilation(pushes out the rear main). if i drive it easy(no boost) it doesn't do it. i might actually fix it one of these days, lol.

I have a filter on one valve cover and an open tube on the other right now. Still does it. Maybe it just screwed the rear main up enough before I vented the driver's side.
