oil leak

ok, well I am getting sick and tired of my driveway getting more and more oil spots on it. The hpop is not leaking where it is dry up front of the valley. However the rear of the valley still looks like something is leaking. I have just changed out the turbo ped upper and lower o-rings just last week and gutted and plugged the ebv. I have a catch can on my ccv but still think some oil is getting by but didn't fig. this much would still be getting by. After I drive it there is always oil on the starter and transmission where it has ran down the block and been blown back. It is not a bad drip but a very slow every now and then drip. Anywhere else I should be looking for oil to be coming from? I just want the oil leaks to go away!!

You check the valve covers? sometimes they are loose enough to leak. What about your intercooler boots? Are they full of oil from the CCV and leaking on the passenger side?
