oil leak

ok, just got my turbo car back and it is a 302 with stage one cam, statem max intake and a b and g kit, i am noticing oil puddling up in the timing cover dishes, like coolant does when the t stat housing is leaking. question is where do you think its coming from? the intake, distributor o ring or small fracture in timing cover?

Did you just put the intake on? If so check the front seal on the intake to make sure it's not leaking.

when it was N/A there was prolly not enough crank pressure to cause the leak. No that its turbo, there is some blow by that is forcing the oil out between the intake. Mine did not seat well to the block and thats were the oil would come out. it would sit on either side of the timing cover. i re-sealed the intake and its dry every time.

Yup I agree front of the int leaking. Nice bead of RTV will cure it, but the int needs to come up

Good Luck
