First thing you need to do is ditch the Banks IQ, it will total your trans. Get you an SCT with custom tunes and you will be amazed.
I would make sure that the valve cover bolts are tight. Our valve cover gaskets are designed to be reused. My valve covers have been off 5 times since I have owned it, never had new gaskets, and doesn't leak a drop. Another known oil leak on our engines are the glow plug harness, the o-rings will leak. New harness is not really that expensive. I put a a new one on with my HG's and studs because it was leaking on the back 2 cylinders.
To tell if it has studs - look on the outside of either head and you will see a row of head bolts/studs going down the outside. If they look like a the head of a normal bolts, you have factory TTY bolts. If the look like a bolt with a nut on it then you have studs.
IDK about the threaded plug with the contacts on it. I have a block heater, I will look tomorrow and see where it plugs to motor and let you know.
