I think the heater lines are about the only thing that go back there that might leak, but you should be able to see them as they go to the firewall on the passenger side. Aside from that, it would almost have to be a external leak from the head gaskets. Maybe a boroscope or a mirror and a cold pressure test would help. Doesn't sound like much fun!
